The 2020 Billboard Music Awards were set to take place back in April, but the coronavirus pandemic necessitated that the ceremony is delayed. It was postponed to October 14, and today, about a month in advance, the nominees have been announced. Well, nominees for all categories except for Billboard Chart Achievement, Top Social Artist, and Top Collaboration, which are fan-voted categories. Voting for those will open on October 1.
Among the nominees, Post Malone is the most nominated artist with 16 nods, followed by Lil Nas X’s 13 nominations. Other multiple nominated artists include Billie Eilish, Khalid (12 each), Lizzo (11), Kanye West (9), Taylor Swift (6), and Justin Bieber (4).
Lil Nas X shared a new video on Twitter to celebrates his Billboard Awad nominations with one of the hilarious video of Shia LaBeouf. As you might remember, over the weekend, 12 of Hollywood’s most iconic celebrities got together for a virtual table read of the 1982 classic, Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
During the virtual table, LaBeouf was literally hot-boxing in his car while the entire table was read, and he was smoking a thick blunt cigarette while Morgan Freeman was narrating the script. However, no one understood whether LaBeouf was really high.
Lil Nas x shared this video which is proof that he is very happy and chose to show his joy in this way.
Here’s what Lil Nas X wrote:
“13 BILLBOARD AWARD NOMINATIONS!! LETS GOOOO!”
