Billboard Awards: The Nominees!

Am 8. Dezember diesen Jahres ist es wieder soweit: Die große Verleihung der Billboard Music Awards geht über die Bühne. Moderator Ryan Seacrest ist an diesem Abend der Gastgeber in der “MGM Grand Garden Arena” von Las Vegas.


Zu den ganz großen Favoriten zählen etwa US-Megastar Usher, der in 13 Kategorien nominiert ist. Kein Wunder, hat er doch erst kürzlich mit folgendem Rekord für Schlagzeilen gesorgt: “Der erste Künstler aller Zeiten, der es schaffte, länger als ein halbes Jahr an der Spitze der Billboard Single Charts” zu stehen! Äußerst stark auch seine Duett-Partnerin Alicia Keys, die es auf ein Dutzend Nominierungen bringt!
