Billboard

The Billboard Music Awards, which give out trophies for the biggest selling, streaming, etc. music, just announced their nominees. Because they are based on popularity, the list is full of artists who have received huge amounts of airplay vs. those that may be artistically sound but haven't crossed into the mainstream. For veteran artists, Madonna is in the lead with three (Touring Artist, Dance Artist, Dance Album), Bruce Sprinsteen for two (Touring Artist, Rock Artist) and Roger Waters and Lionel Richie one each (Touring Artist and Country Album, respectively).
