Billboard Music Awards 2017: Complete List Of Nominees

The 2017 Billboard Music Award nominations were announced last week in preparation for the awards show that will take place next month.

On Monday, April 10, Pete Wentz, of Fall Out Boy, and singer-songwriter Julia Michaels announced the first five categories on Good Morning America. Billboard released the remainder of the list later that day. In the lead with the most nominations are Drake and The Chainsmokers with 22 nods each. Following close behind is Twenty One Pilots with 17, Rihanna with 14, The Weeknd with 13 and Beyonce with eight. Among Drake’s nominations are Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Rap Artist, Top Rap Tour, and Top Billboard 200 Album. The Chainsmokers were nominated for Top Dance/Electronic Album, Top Hot 100 Song, and Top Radio Song, along with many others.

According to Billboard, the nominees are determined by “fan interactions with music, including album and digital songs sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring and social engagement. These measurements are tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound. The awards are based on the reporting period of March 18, 2016, through March 16, 2017.”
