The 2020 Billboard Music Award Nominees Include Taylor Swift & Ariana Grande

It's been a trying year for the entertainment industry, but music artists haven't just let time pass idly during the coronavirus pandemic. While maintaining social distancing and recording at in-home studios during quarantine, there's been no shortage of amazing new music (and virtual performances of older jams) this year. Now more than ever, people are depending on music to get them through rough times, and the 2020 Billboard Music Award nominees are definitely something to get hyped about.

The Billboard Music Awards were originally set to happen in Las Vegas on April 29, but the month prior, they were postponed due to the global pandemic. For months, it was unclear when, or even if, the BBMAs would happen in 2020. Fans were thrilled on Aug. 14 when it was announced the award show had gotten the OK to broadcast on Oct. 14, 2020.

While many of the details, like who will be performing and how, are still unclear, it was confirmed that Kelly Clarkson will return as host of the show for the third consecutive year. Now there's one thing that's for certain: Swift definitely got the recognition she deserved in the nominations. Fans will have to wait just a bit longer until Oct. 14 to see how many awards she takes home.
