The 2023 Billboard Music Awards, honouring the biggest names in music, are gearing up for an exciting start at 8 pm ET on Sunday. As the event nears, stars have already begun to grace the red carpet, adding to the anticipation of the evening.
The awards, known for celebrating artists based on their year-end performance metrics on the Billboard charts, promise a night of recognition and celebration.
This year, Taylor Swift leads the nominations with an impressive 20 nods, followed closely by Morgan Wallen and SZA, each with 17. Swift, holding the record as the most-awarded female artist in BBMA history with 29 wins, is running for top categories like “Top Artist,” “Top Hot 100 Songwriter,” and more.
In addition to the awards, fans can look forward to performances by renowned artists like Mariah Carey, Peso Pluma, Karol G, Bebe Rexha, and David Guetta, available for viewing at bbmas.
Among the early arrivals on the red carpet, Mariah Carey caught attention as she prepared to perform her Christmas classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” Karol G, set to perform tonight, turned heads with her stunning appearance in a nude dress and bleached blond hair. Peso Pluma, a rising star in the Mexican “corridos tumbados” genre, also entered early, with five nominations, including “Top New Artist.”
