Billboard Music Awards 2020 Nominations are officially out. Taylor Swift and Billie Eilish have been nominated under numerous categories including Top Female Artist. However, BBAs 2020 gave BTS just two nods.

The Billboard Music Awards 2020 nominations are officially out with Taylor Swift and Billie Eilish leading the way. Both the singers have been nominated in numerous categories, including Top Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album and Top Female Artist. Taylor bagged her sixth Top Billboard 200 Album nomination, surpassing rapper Eminem’s record. Apart from the two women, Jonas Brothers, Khalid, Ariana Grande, Post Malone and BTS bagged nominations in different categories. BTS is nominated in the Top Duo/Group category for the second consecutive year. 

If the Bangtan Boys win again, they will become the first group nominated in the category to register consecutive wins since One Direction, that won in 2015 and 2016. Unfortunately, BTS’ hot track Dynamite couldn’t qualify for the BBAs this year for the awards show’s eligibility period is March 23, 2019 – March 14, 2020. BTS is also nominated for Top Social Artist. Avicii has received a posthumous award nomination Top Dance/Electronic Artist.

Traditionally, Billboard Music Awards takes place at the dawn of summer. However, 2020 has anything but traditional. The COVID-19 outbreak forced Hollywood to delay movies, live events and awards shows. This includes the BBAs 2020. The prestigious awards show was scheduled to take place on April 29. But Billboard announced that the awards show will take place on October 14 with  Kelly Clarkson still hosting.
