Congrats to Taylor Swift and Maroon 5! They, along with fun., are leading the pack of 2013 Billboard Music Award nominees with 11 nods a piece!

Taylor is up for awards in major categories like Top Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album, Top Female Artist and Top Digital Songs! Maroon 5 is also competing for the Top Artist and Top Digital Songs titles along with Top Hot 100 Song (for both ‘Payphone’ and ‘One More Night) and Top Duo/Group.

Having two of the five nominations for Top Hot 100 Song will surely help their chances, just as it will for One Direction, whose albums ‘Take Me Home’ and ‘Up All Night’ will compete with each other in the Top Billboard 200 Album category. The 1D boys were also nominated for Top Artist and Top New Artist. We bet they’ll take the latter home for sure!

Showing no signs of slowing down, Rihanna has notched 10 nominations in this year’s batch including Top Artist and Top Female Artist.

If the nominees themselves haven’t convinced you to watch already, the performance lineup proves to put the show over the top! Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, Miguel and, most importantly, Prince, will all take the stage at the 2013 celebrations.
