The nominations for the 2019 Billboard Music Awards were announced on Thursday, April 4, by singer Kelly Clarkson and the country music duo Dan + Shay on the Today show. Trophies will be handed out for 56 different categories during a three-hour ceremony that Clarkson will host on Wednesday, May 1, that will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Cardi B scored the most nods of any artist — an astonishing 21. Drake and Post Malone trailed behind her, with 17 nods each.
There are two categories in which fans can vote for the winners, Billboard Chart Achievement Award and Top Social Artist. Details on when and how to vote will be revealed soon.
Music fans can purchase tickets now for the Billboard Music Awards via AXS.com. However, if you can't be there in person, don't worry as NBC will air the show live on television.
