The 2019 Billboard Music Awards has officially announced this year’s nominees!
On April 4 local time, the Billboard Music Awards revealed its first set of nominations for this year’s award ceremony, and three K-pop groups made the list for 2019.
BTS, who made history in 2017 by becoming the first Korean group to win a Billboard Music Award—and who went on to snag the Top Social Artist Award in 2018 as well—received two nominations this year. Not only will the group be defending their title as Top Social Artist for the third consecutive year, but they were also nominated for Top Duo/Group for the very first time. The other nominees for the Top Duo/Group Award include Dan + Shay, Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5, and Panic! at the Disco.
EXO and GOT7 also received their first nominations for Top Social Artist this year, joining fellow nominees BTS, Ariana Grande, and Louis Tomlinson.
The 2019 BIllboard Music Awards will air live on May 1 at 8 p.m. ET.
