The Weeknd leads nominees at the Billboard Music Awards

The Weeknd leads the list of nominees for this year’s Billboard Music Awards.

The 32-year-old star is a finalist in 17 categories in total, including Top Artist and Top Male Artist, while his collaboration with Ariana Grande, ‘Save Your Tears (Remix)’, is in the running for six gongs.

Elsewhere, Doja Cat is the leading female finalist, having been nominated for 14 awards.

The chart-topping rap star is a finalist for some of the most prestigious accolades, including Top Artist and Top Female Artist.

Meanwhile, Justin Bieber, Kanye West – who legally changed his name to Ye last year – and Olivia Rodrigo have all received 13 nominations each.

Justin, 28, has already won 21 Billboard Music Awards during his career, meaning that he’s the third-most decorated artist in the history of the event.

However, the rankings could change this year, as both Drake and Taylor Swift – who are currently ahead of Justin on the list – have also received multiple nominations for the upcoming awards show, which is being held in Las Vegas on May 15.

Other big-name nominees include Dua Lipa and Ed Sheeran, both of whom have been nominated for nine awards each.

Ed, 31, is in contention for the Top Male Artist gong, alongside Drake, Justin, Lil Nas X and The Weeknd.

Dua, on the other hand, faces competition from Taylor, Olivia, Adele and Doja Cat for the Top Female Artist prize.

BTS, Giveon and Taylor have all been nominated for seven awards in total.

Taylor, 32, is already the most decorated female artist of all time at the Billboard Music Awards and she’ll be hoping to add to her list of achievements at next month’s show.

The ‘Blank Space’ hitmaker is actually a finalist for the Top Artist gong for a record-extending eighth time, while she’s also in the running for the Top Country Artist accolade.
