Billboard Releases 2016 Music Awards Finalists


Billboard Awards

Set to blow off the roof of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on May 22nd, the 2016 Billboard Music Awards finalist list is being dominated by two popular Canadians.

The Weekend is a finalist 19 times in 16 categories, and the “Biebs” follows with 12 nominations in 11 categories, with one of them being for Top Dance/Electronic Song with “Where Are Ü Now”.

Unfortunately and unsurprisingly, not a single Electronic Music Artists broke into any of the more general award categories this year.
