    Lowkey surprised that y’all posted the Christian artist section.

    Actually, surprised there’s a category for that on the Billboard Awards.

    Huh.

  • James

    WOW? NOT SURPRISE:OVERRATED+ NO TALENT=FEMINEM AND 5 HEAD!!

  • Mike B

    Hip pop makes up a large majority of ever award, and hiphop oriented pop music, like Beiber, kesha and gaga who’s signed to Akon’s label…

    So, all in all i guess thats a good thing

  • So Icy Boi!

  • nujerz

    Billboard Awards are based on sales, downloads and radio/video play etc. That how they determine winners as well.

  • Ice Cold

    EM is the best

  • xedos

    Why Rihanna is always in the RNB group ,but not the pop group? When these white ppl writies in their magazine they call her a pop artist, but when the awards come around she’s an RNB artist

  • Belize is g*y, mac weasel’s opinion aint sh*t

  • jdot

    Rihanna: “He sold out”

  • Bangers N Mash

    @YMCMB Those bitches could have all the money in the world, still doesn’t change the fact they lack the skills on the mic.

  • Sticknmove

    Glad that pop rapper Gucci isn’t nominated for anything.
    Sucks for him, he’ll be getting that ice cream glazed on while well deserving hip hop artists will be sweeping the awards. Corny ass nigga.

  • Loko

    Umm what is the criteria & eligibilty period for this cockamani award show? No Kanye West nominations are a joke. Unless they are still black balling him, in that case they should listen to Gorgeous!
