The Weeknd Tops Billboard Music Awards Nominees E! News UK

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

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

Elsewhere, Doja Cat is the main 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 all received 13 nominations each.

Justin, 28, has already won 21 Billboard Music Awards in his career, which means he is the third most decorated artist in the history of the event.

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

Other high-profile nominees include Dua Lipa and Ed Sheeran, who were both nominated for nine awards each.

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

Dua, meanwhile, faces competition from Taylor, Olivia, Adele and Doja Cat for the award for Best Female Artist.

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 hopes to add to her list of accomplishments on next month’s show.

The “Blank Space” hitmaker is actually a finalist for the Top Artist gong for a record eighth time, as she is also up for the Top Country Artist award.
