Taylor Swift and Sam Smith are the artists to beat at the Billboard Awards. Both have four nominations each – for best song, album, top artist and nods in the best male and best female artist categories.
The nominees were announced on Good Morning America earlier today by Pete Wentz (Fallout Boy) and Ludacris doing the honours, the latter currently on cinema screens in Furious 7.
