You might think that being one of the top-selling musical artists of the year would be reward enough. But you’d be wrong ― according to Billboard.
The Billboard Music Awards are going down on May 19, and today we caught a glimpse at the finalists. Remember, these awards aren’t exactly based on artistic merit ― they measure an artist’s success based on store and digital sales, touring, fans on social media, and so on. You might think the millions of dollars resulting from these things is kind of its own reward, but no ― apparently they also need a trophy.
See who this year’s finalists are after the jump!
