We’ll it’s my favorite time of the year again! THE BILLBOARD AWARDS ARE COMING AND WHEN I SAY I CAN’T WAIT! BILLBOARD PARTY DAMN IT! Any who the show this year is scheduled for May 22, 8 PM EST on ABC. The crew revealed early last week that ATL’s finest Ciara and Ludacris will be hosting this year and I am absolutely here for this idea and I’ll tell you why! I love Ciara and Ludacris together. Like the music they make (especially Oh from Ciara’s first album! Just saying a little performance would be nice) and they just have an organic chemistry. Must be an ATL thing but I like it!
Now the nominees were released today and I just wanna give a shout out the homie The Weeknd! When I tell you this mofo is nominated for 19 awards in 16 categories’! THIS IS HIS NIGHT! I don’t give a damn if he doesn’t win one, the fact that he has that many nods, is enough to keep us talking. Not to mention, his album is REALLY GOOD! It’s in my car right now! VERY EXPLECIT so don’t let the kids around when you’re listening but its great!
Also snatching wigs, as expected is Taylor Swift. Now hate 1989 if you will, this is my favorite Swift album. I liked Red too but 1989 gave me a new Taylor that I could absolutely get with! Along with the Beib these three are the front runners of the show. Get into a few lists of nominees below and let us know who you thinking is gonna take home the wins.
