Nominations List for the 2017 Billboard Music Awards Is Finally Out

The 2017 Billboard Music Awards were announced the morning of April 10, and the event will be honoring the hottest names in music today. This year’s show will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on May 21, 2017.

The Billboard Music Award is often an honor given by Billboard, a publication and music popularity chart covering the music business. The show had been held annually since 1990 in December until it went dormant in 2006. The awards returned in 2011 and is held annually in May.

Unlike other awards, such as the Grammy Award, which determine nominations as a result of the highest votes received by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the Billboard Music Awards finalists are based on album and digital songs sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring and social engagement.

These measurements are tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners. The 2017 awards were based on the reporting period of March 18, 2016 through March 16, 2017. Awards are given for the top album/artist/single in different genres. Below is the full list;
