Post Malone leads the nominations for the 2020 Billboard Music Awards with 16 nods.

The Congratulations hitmaker has picked up 16 nominations from 15 categories, including top artist, top male artist and top Billboard 200 artist. He also earned two noms in the top rap song category.

Other multiple nominees include Lil Nas X with 13, Billie Eilish and Khalid with 12 each, Lizzo with 11, and Kanye West with nine.

Post also could break Drake's record for the artist with the most wins in a single night if he takes home more than 13 awards.

Elsewhere in the nominations, Top Male Artist sees Post compete against Ed Sheeran, DaBaby, Khalid, and Lil Nas X, while the Top New Artist nominees include Eilish, DaBaby, Lil Nas X, Lizzo, and Roddy Ricch.

Five singles that reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart are vying for the Top Hot 100 song prize. They are Eilish's Bad Guy, Lewis Capaldi's Someone You Loved, Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus' Old Town Road, Lizzo's Truth Hurts, and Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello's Senorita.

Meanwhile, alongside Post's Hollywood's Bleeding, the other Top Billboard 200 Album nominees are Thank U, Next by Ariana Grande, Khalid's Free Spirit, Eilish's When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? and Taylor Swift's Lover.

Originally slated for 29 April, the awards were postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic. It's not yet clear how the 2020 ceremony, set for 14 October, will take place, but Kelly Clarkson will continue her hosting duties for the third year in a row.
