After hosting for three years in a row, Kelly Clarkson will not return to host the Billboard Music Awards in 2021. Instead, her fellow coach from The Voice will take over hosting, according to Chicago Tribune… it’s Nick Jonas!

It’s interesting to see that there are Top Artist categories in general and for each genre, but also Top Male and Top Female for general and specific genres… That means an artist can be nominated a handful of times for just about the same thing – it certainly put The Weeknd at an advantage, for example.
