Superstars Lil Wayne and Rihanna lead the finalists for the this year’s Billboard Music Awards. The 2012 show will be taking place on May 20th at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, and both artists are well-represented amongst nominees.
Rihanna is a finalist in 13 of the 22 artist categories this year, with Lil Wayne as a finalist in 10 categories.
Billboard reports that the awards finalists will “reflect Billboard’s chart rankings based on key fan interactions with music, including album sales and downloads, track downloads, radio airplay and touring as well as streaming and social interactions on Facebook, Twitter, Vevo, Youtube, Spotify and other popular online destinations for music.”
