Billboard Music Awards 2020: Complete List of Nominees and Winners

Music makes the people come together! Kelly Clarkson returned to host the 2020 Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday, October 14, six months after the ceremony was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Billboard Music Awards 2020: Everything You Need to Know

Post Malone led the pack with a total of 16 nominations, just one less than his 2019 record total of 17. Lil Nas X landed in second place with 13 nominations. Billie Eilish and Khalid received 12 nominations each followed by Lizzo with 11 and Kanye West with nine — including four in the gospel music categories.

Taylor Swift — who is nominated for six categories — could beat Drake‘s record for most wins by any artist of all time if she takes home five awards. Malone might also make history if he wins more than 13 awards, which would break Drake’s record for most wins in a single night.

It’s also a big night for Lil Nas X, 21, Lizzo, 32, Doja Cat, Harry Styles and the Jonas Brothers, who are all first-time nominees.

Garth Brooks will take the stage as this year’s ICON Award recipient, which has previously honored Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Cher and Celine Dion.

Malone, Alicia Keys, John Legend, BTS, Demi Lovato, Brandy, En Vogue and Sia are also set to perform along with Doja, 24, Bad Bunny, Kane Brown, Swae Lee, Khalid, 22, Saint Jhn and Luke Combs.

Clarkson, 38, is hosting the show for the third year in a row. “I’m thrilled to be back with my Billboard family,” she said in a statement in February. “I love being part of an event that celebrates our greatest artists and entertains our fans. This a night of music that you won’t want to miss!”

The 2020 Billboard Music Awards was originally scheduled to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 29, but was postponed in March due to the pandemic. It is being broadcast live from Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
