Beyoncé Nominated For Billboard Music Awards

The 2014 Billboard Music Awards is right around the corner and nominations have officially been announced.

Newcomers Lorde and Imagine Dragons lead the pack of nominees with 12 nominations each. Out of the 40 categories Justin Timberlake scores 11 while Pharrell lands eight, Robin Thicke with seven, and Eminem snitches six nominations. Jay Z, Drake, and Rihanna all pick up five each at this years ceremony.

Meanwhile, the woman keeping every artist on their toes Beyoncé ranked in a total of seven nominations.

The 2014 Billboard Music Awards will air live on ABC May 18 at 8 pm est. from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. I can’t wait to see the list of performers because nominations alone this year are packed with talent.
