Like all other ceremonies, the 2020 Billboard Music Awards were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but with a newly-scheduled date of October 14 on the calendar, the show marched forward with the list of nominees for the upcoming ceremony on Tuesday (September 22).

For this year's ceremony, Post Malone, Billie Eilish and Taylor Swift all scored major love in several categories. The trio are set to face off in the biggest honor of the night for Top Artist, alongside Khalid and the Jonas Brothers. Meanwhile, Ariana Grande received an Album of the Year honor for thank u, next, which will see her compete against Eilish's When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go, Swift's Lover, Khalid's Free Spirit and Malone's Hollywood's Bleeding. Scroll on below to see the full list of nominees for this year's ceremony!

Kelly Clarkson will continue her tradition of hosting the show for the third consecutive year in a row, marking her first since winning her first Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host. She will also become the third person to host or co-host the BBMAs three or more times after Kathy Griffin (1998-2000) and Ludacris (2014-2017). With just three weeks until the big date, you can expect more updates on the upcoming ceremony in the near future.
