Shawn Mendes On His 'Unreal' Billboard Music Award Nominations


The chart topping hit song has earned Wizkid seven Billboard Music Awards nominations. The BMAs will air just days after it was announced that Shawn Mendes received four nominations at next month's iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards, according to Billboard. So as these awards enter their 24th edition in some hours, here's all you must know about this year's event. And the Billboard Music Awards are acknowledging Shawn Mendes's music success and even gives him the top praise, a Top Artist nomination, to compete against Adele, Drake, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, The Weeknd, Twenty One Pilots, The Chainsmokers, and Ariana Grande.

Billboard has a year-end chart that's literally called the Top Country Artist chart, but choosing the victor of this 2017 Billboard Music Award is more complex.

The annual awards ceremony will take place on Sunday, May 21.

Tickets are on sale for the "2017 Billboard Music Awards".




Ludacris and Vanessa Hudgens will co-host the show.

Fans are desperately looking forward to the jam-packed list of performers.

Although the full line-up is yet to be revealed, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Nicki Minaj, Celine Dion, Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Drake, John Legend, Florida Georgia Line and Camila Cabello are expected to perform.

Miley Cyrus will make her appearance with her new single, Malibu.
