    Sing it loud! The 2021 Billboard Music Awards are sure to bring the noise and the applause when Nick Jonas hosts the Sunday, May 23 show.

    The star-studded event wouldn’t be complete without the biggest names in Hollywood, many of whom are nominated for multiple awards.

    The Weeknd tops the list of nominees with 16 nods, including Top Artist, Top Male Artist and Top Hot 100 Artist. DaBaby was a close second, earning 11 nominations in nine categories.

    Taylor Swift will give The Weeknd a run for his money in the Top Artist category. The “Exile” singer is also a contender in the Top Female Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album for Folklore.

    Country singer Gabby Barrett, however, has the most nods of any female artist this year. She is a nine-time finalist, including Top New Artist and Top Country Artist, where she’ll go head-to-head with all male artists. The “I Hope” singer, 21, will be competing against the legendary Carrie Underwood and Maren Morris when it comes to Top Country Female Artist.

    Ahead of one of music’s biggest nights, Billboard announced that Drake is receiving the prestigious Artist of the Decade Award after being ranked the best-performing artist of the last decade. The “God’s Plan” rapper, 34, currently holds the title for most Billboard Music Awards with 27 total.

    Pink is also getting a special trophy, the Icon Award, during the Sunday broadcast. The coveted award honors musicians who’ve achieved excellence on the Billboard charts and had a lasting effect on the music industry.

    “As a little girl, I always dreamed about being a singer and sharing my love of music with the world,” the “Raise Your Glass” singer, 41, told Billboard ahead of the show. “Years later, to receive the Billboard Music Awards Icon Award is hard to fathom! I feel so honored to join the ranks of music idols like Cher, Garth Brooks, Janet Jackson and Stevie Wonder. It’s a true ‘pinch me’ moment and I feel humbled and blessed.”

    Rapper Trae Tha Truth will also be honored with the Change Maker Award for his philanthropic work and efforts for social justice.
