Billboard Music Awards 2023: preview
Taylor Swift could make BBMA history on Sunday night, with the "Anti-Hero" singer leading the way with a whopping 20 nominations. The country starlet turned pop juggernaut already has 29 trophies on her shelf, which makes her the most successful female artist in Billboard Music Awards history, but if things go her way this weekend she could surpass Drake to become the outright leader. Drake has 34 BBMAs and is a 14-nomination finalist this year.
Other artists expected to win big at the big bash at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas include Morgan Wallen (back on the scene after his drunken racial slur a couple of years ago) with 17 nominations, the same number as SZA, followed by The Weeknd with 16. Drake and Zach Bryan have 14 nods apiece, while Luke Combs has rocked up with 10 nominations.
P Diddy presented last year’s awards, but Billboard has decided to shake things up this year, by eschewing a host altogether. Instead, the show will be anchored at a variety of locations. How that works in practice remains to be seen, but it’s good to see a bit of variety with awards.
The headline acts performing on the night are Karol G, Stray Kids, David Guetta, Peso Pluma, NewJeans and Morgan Wallen. Hot on the scene right now are Stray Kids, who are set to perform their hit single “Lalalala”, a debut for the K-Pop group at the BBMA. They’ve also been nominated for both Top Global K-Pop Artist and Top K-Pop Album.
And to round off the night, Mariah Carey will be performing her 29-year-old classic hit single “All I Want for Christmas Is You” to end the ceremony. Where has time gone?
