The finalists for the 2014 Billboard Music Awards have been revealed, and unsurprisingly, Imagine Dragons and Lorde are leading the pack with 12 nominations each. But Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis aren’t too far behind, with 11, 10, and eight nominations, respectively.  

Imagine Dragons’ insanely catchy and highly commercial single “Radioactive” was everywhere last summer, and it featured a nice resurgence in the pop culture zeitgeist after an epic performance with Kendrick Lamar at the 2014 Grammys. Meanwhile, emo teen queen Lorde and her debut single “Royals” were virtually inescapable after it shot to the  Billboard Hot 100 chart's top-spot for nine consecutive weeks.

Controversial pop star Miley Cyrus also picked up six nominations for her breakout (read: BANGERZ) year. We can only hope her impressive list of nominations leads to a live performance when the 2014 Billboard Music Awards are broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 18 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
