Billboard Music Awards 2021: Here is the complete list of nominees

NBC will broadcast the show on May 23 from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles starting at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST

The 2021 Billboard Music Awards on Thursday unveiled this year’s list of nominees.

According to E! News, the Billboard Music Awards announced that artists like DaBaby, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, and The Weeknd, and more go head-to-head for top honors. Morgan Wallen, who drew controversy earlier this year over a video of him saying a racial slur, is also nominated in six categories but has been barred from appearing on the award show. He has apologized for his behavior.

First-time nominee DaBaby is leading the pack with 11 Billboard Music Award nominates, followed by Pop Smoke with 10 and Gabby Barrett with nine.

Other notable Billboard nominees include Bad Bunny, Juice WRLD, Justin Bieber, Dua Lipa, and Drake.

The annual event will occur on May 23, as it is returning to its usual month after the pandemic postponed last year’s ceremony to October. NBC will broadcast the show from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles starting at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST.
