If this year’s Billboard Music Awards nominations are any indication, the show will surely be star-studded.
Khalid and Bebe Rexha announced the names of the first round of nominees for the 2018 soirée on the Today show, Tuesday. Kendrick Lamar, Ed Sheeran, and Taylor Swift lead the pack with nominations in multiple categories including top female and male artist. Lamar and Sheeran lead with four nominations, each, thus far.
Khalid — a nominee, himself, for top new artist — will also announce the remaining categories via livestream on the Billboard and Billboard Music Awards Facebook pages later Tuesday morning.
