The Billboard Music Awards 2017 is the talk of the town these days with the fiercest competition ever seen before. Artists topping the Billboard Hot 100 right now include Bruno Mars (That’s What I Like), Ed Sheeran (Shape of You), Kendrick Lamar (Humble) and the collaboration between Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee ft. Justin Bieber. The charts keep on changing but the strongest contenders have remained on top for weeks.

The biggest award of the BBMAs is undoubtedly for Top Artist. The nominees include the best of the best: Adele, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Drake, Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Rihanna, The Chainsmokers, Twenty One Pilots and The Weeknd. The last three have also been nominated for the Billboard Chart Achievement Award along with Luke Bryan and Nicki Minaj. The Top Male Artist category nominees also include Future besides the ones for the highest honor while the Top Female Artist nominees include Sia as well.

The newcomers aiming for the category of Top New Artist are Alessia Cara, Desiigner, Lil Uzi Vert, Lukas Graham and Zayn. The Chainsmokers and Twenty One Pilots have their third BBMA nomination for Top Duo/Group sharing the honor with the legendary Guns N’ Roses, Coldplay and Florida Georgia Line. The same names dominate the nominations in other awards such as Top Billboard 200 Artists, Top 100 Artists, Top Song Sales Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top Streaming Songs Artist, Top Touring Artist, etc.

The most exciting and unexpected thing about BBMA 2017 turned out to be in the Top Social Artist category. The nominees are Justin Bieber (who has won this award six times already), Selena Gomez, Shawn Mendes, Ariana Grande and BTS. Wait, BTS who? This is the most common question on the internet since voting began two days ago.

Currently, BTS is leading the Top Social Artist category with over 40 million votes on the third day of voting. Justin Bieber is trailing with over 6 million votes so the gap is huge! This South Korean Kpop boy group has a dedicated fandom called ARMY spread across the world voting day and night to bring home the coveted award.
