The 2016 Juno’s proved to be a BIG night for The Weeknd…he walked away with 5 Juno’s out of the 6 Categories he was nominated in and now this…
The Billboard Music Award 2016 Finalists have been announced and The Weeknd once again leads the pack as a finalist 19 times in 16 different categories. YOWZA!!
Bieber trails behind as a finalist 12 times in 11 categories, Drake is a finalist 11 times in 10 separate categories.
Taylor Swift and Adele are tied for 8 awards. But, I don’t think Adele is worried considering she just broke yet ANOTHER record. She had the world’s best-selling album of 2015, which undeniably “helped music revenues record their first significant growth since the dawn of the digital age two decades ago.” (Yahoo Music Article) WOAH!?!? 20 years…20!!!! ’25’ went on to sell 17.5 million copies. T-Swift (1989) and her bestie Ed Sheeran (X) both tied with selling 3.5 million copies. Not too shabby…not too shabby!
Back to the Billboard Music Awards 2016…check out the rest of the finalists in the link below.
They will be hosted by Ludacris and Ciara airing May 22 at 8pm.
