Five singles that reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (and spent a collective 31 weeks in the top spot) are vying for top Hot 100 song.
The 2020 Billboard Music Awards are around the corner, and Billboard has your exclusive first look at the nominees for five categories.
BTS is vying for its second consecutive award for top duo/group. The other nominees are Dan + Shay, Jonas Brothers, Maroon 5 and Panic! At The Disco. If BTS wins again, they’ll become the first group or duo to win back-to-back awards in this category since another hugely popular boy band import, One Direction, in 2015-16. Dan + Shay’s nomination is remarkable for a core country artist in an all-genre category.
Ariana Grande is going for her second consecutive win for top female artist. She’s competing against Taylor Swift, who won the award in 2013, 2015 and 2018. The other nominees are Billie Eilish, Halsey and Lizzo. If Grande wins again, she’ll become the first artist to win two years running in this category since the BBMAs re-launched in 2011. If Swift wins again, she’ll become the first four-time winner in this category since the show’s re-launch.
