Billboard announced today (April 9) the finalists for the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. Both Imagine Dragons and Lorde lead the nominations in 12 of the 40 award categories, with Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis following close behind with 11, 10 and eight noms respectively.
We already knew some of the headliners (Eminem, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Skrillex), but the official release revealed a few new acts on the bill including Foster the People, Lorde, Avett Brothers and the rest of the bill.
