The music industry’s marquee names are being honored Sunday at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.
Among the 41 finalists — as Billboard described the nominees in its announcement — Taylor Swift leads the charge with 14 nominations. Sam Smith follows with 13, Iggy Azalea has 11 and Meghan Trainor has nine.
Billboard Music Awards finalists are based on album and digital song sales, radio airplay, streaming, touring and social-media interactions — measurements that are tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound.
The 2015 Billboard Music Awards are hosted by Ludacris and Chrissy Teigen and broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on ABC at 8:00pm/7c.
