The BBMA or the Billboard Music Awards are back! The deadly COVID-19 pandemic forced the Billboard Music Awards to postpone its 2020 event by 6 months. However they have finally rolled out the much awaited nominees for 2020.
The show will now take place on Oct. 14 which will be live on NBC. The 2020 BBMAs are unlikely to be done in front of no fans but will still have a huge range of stars from the music industry including Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Jonas Brothers and will definitely not be forgotten, not least because they are very different to previous years!
As it’s 2020, the nominee rollout was a little bit unusual. Instead of sharing the whole list at once, the BBMAs decided to phase it.
First, the nominees in the Top Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album was released, roughly around at 8am 22 September.
Then, shortly after the nominees for Top New Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Female Artist, Top Duo/Group, and Top Hot 100 Song were shared over at Billboard.com.
After that, all the remaining nominees and categories would be shared via the Billboard Music Awards Twitter account.
Some may say its a bit over the top, however with a 6 month delay and the COVID situation a bit of excitement is what we need.
