Nominees for the 2020 Billboard Music Awards have been announced and the list is looking as hot as ever! 

Every year Billboard stirs up the industry and hosts their infamous music awards, an annual event that has been held every year since 1990. Billboard isn’t letting the pandemic get in the way of honoring well-deserving musicians this year either.  

From “Top R&B Tour” to “Top Song from the Billboard Top 100 List,” this award show has a category for everyone.  

So let’s get into some of this year’s nominees & their reactions!


Our favorite, Summer Walker, is nominated for three awards this year! Claiming nominations for Top R&B Artist, Top R&B Female Artist, and Top R&B Album, this is a huge year for Walker!

She tweeted out how honored she was:


The famous country duo, Florida Georgia Line, was nominated for Top Country Tour and Top Country Duo this year! 

They expressed that the nominations “mean so much” to them:


With 5 nominations, Billy Ray Cyrus has some pretty good odds of taking home an award! Many of these for his hit collaboration with Lil Nas X. His nominations include; Top Collaboration, Top Rap Song, Top Hot 100 Song, Top Streaming Song, and Top Selling Song. 


This boy band had an amazing year and it shows through their four nominations! Nominated for Top Artist, Top Duo/Group, Top Radio Song, and Top Radio Songs Artist.
