Get ready to party music fans! Tonight, NBC will be airing the Billboard Music Awards and Jaymes has the inside look at today's award show.


The Show Will Go On

In March, the Billboard Music Awards was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, six months later, the award show is back with Kelly Clarkson hosting for the third time. The show will not have a live audience but will be socially distant as the show will still take place at LA's Dolby Theater. The awards are based on the billboard charts of March 2019-March 2020. It's going to be a big night as presenters include Jane Lynch, Nicole Richie, and Julia Michaels.

Post Malone Leads With Most Nominations

Post Malone leads the night with 16 nominations. Followed by Lil Nas X with 13 nominations, Billie Eilish and Khalid both have 12 nominations, Lizzo has 11 nominations, and Kanye West has 9 nominations. However, the major question is, who will take home the Top Artist Award? Eilish, Khalid, Post Malone, Taylor Swift, and the Jonas Brothers are all nominated to take home the top award.

Also, we can't forget music performances from your favorite artists like BTS, Alicia Keys, Bad Bunny, Luke Combs, Demi Lovato and more!

Well, this is it. The last one. At least for a while. Hopefully, I'm back in the fall, giving you guys all the juiciest under the radar entertainment out there. But, for now, alas, this is the end. I'm doing something special today. I'm giving the usual TV show, movie, video game, and album, but this time, it's not under the radar, or new. It's my favorite things. Things where if people I love haven't seen them, I slap them across the face and make them watch. But, enough sappy stuff, let's get into it!
