Billboard Music Awards Winners 2015

(ABC)

The 2015 Billboard Music Awards will be handed out on Sunday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Gossip Cop has a full list of the winners below.

The Billboard Awards are inspired by the Billboard music charts, but recently expanded to look at social media influence, too. This year’s nominees were based on data from “album and digital songs sales, radio airplay, streaming, touring and social interactions on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Spotify and other popular online destinations for music” between March 10, 2014 and March 8, 2015.

Taylor Swift received 14 nominations, more than any other star. She is up for the biggest category, Top Artist, against One Direction, Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, and Sam Smith. The 41 different categories cover virtually every genre, capped off by a fan-voted award for Billboard Chart Achievement. In that one, Swift is a contender alongside Iggy Azalea and Meghan Trainor.

The ceremony begins at 8 p.m. Eastern, and Gossip Cop is updating the winners’ list live throughout the show, though some categories will not be broadcast on the show. Tell us if your favorite wins!
