The Nominees for the Billboard Music Awards are Out

Posted at April 12th, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

Billboard just released the finalists for the 2016 Billboard Music Awards and they’re based on the “the awards are based on the reporting period of tracking dates March 23, 2015 through March 17, 2016 and Billboard chart dates April 11, 2015 through April 2, 2016.” The awards will be held on May 22 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and will be hosted by Ludacris and Ciara.

For the dance music categories which include Top Dance/Electronic Artist, Top Dance/Electronic Album, and Top Dance/Electronic Song, the nominees are:

Top Dance/Electronic Artist:
The Chainsmokers
DJ Snake
David Guetta
Major Lazer
Zedd

Top Dance/Electronic Album:
David Guetta, Listen
Major Lazer, Peace Is The Mission
ODESZA, In Return
Skrillex & Diplo, Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü
Zedd, True Colors

Top Dance/Electronic Song:
The Chainsmokers Featuring ROZES, “Roses”
DJ Snake & AlunaGeorge, “You Know You Like It”
David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha & Afrojack, “Hey Mama”
Major Lazer & DJ Snake Featuring MØ, “Lean On”
Skrillex & Diplo, “Where Are Ü Now” with Justin Bieber


 

Since it’s a televised award show, the nominees like Zedd, DJ Snake, Skrillex, & Diplo are good choices as it will bring in young viewers. What’s odd is the inclusion of David Guetta and Odesza in Top Album as both were released in 2014 but this could be due to their placement on the charts at the given time. Even weirder is the absence of Jack Ü from the Top Dance/Electronic Artist category despite being present in the other 2 categories and having had a stellar year in the music industry.

Check out the rest of the nominees for the other categories here.
