The Billboard Music Awards nominations are here! On Tuesday, nominees in two categories were announced on the Today show, with followup announcements made on Billboard.com and Twitter throughout the morning.

Post Malone leads the pack with 16 nominations, followed by Lil Nas X with 13. Billie Eilish and Khalid both scored  12 nominations. Lizzo (11), Kanye West (nine), Taylor Swift (six), and Justin Bieber (four) were other multi-nominated artists.

The awards for Billboard Chart Achievement, Top Social Artist and Top Collaboration are fan-voted categories. Voting will open on Oct. 1st.

Originally set to take place in April, the 2020 Billboard Music Awards were rescheduled to Wednesday, Oct. 14 due to the coronavirus pandemic. While the date has changed, the host has not, with Kelly Clarkson returning to helm the show.

This year’s awards are based on the chart period of March 23, 2019 through March 14, 2020. Nominees and winners are based on fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring and social engagement, tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including MRC Data/Nielsen Music.
