The 2020 Billboard Music Awards nominees are finally here before the ceremony’s rescheduled in october 14th ceremony.

Originally slated for April 29th of this year, the awards was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. it isn’t yet clear how the 2020 ceremony will work, but Kelly Clarkson will continue her hosting duties for the third year during a row. It’s safe to expect a mixture of live and pre-recorded segments, if the Emmys, VMAs, and BET Awards are anything to travel by. But can anything virtual top 2019, when BTS had numerous iconic moments (including but not limited to: their group hugs, a glimpse of Jin’s RJ, and therefore the JoBros serenading BTS)? We’ll see.
