Also at the top of the pack is Justin Timberlake, who’s named in 11 categories, Katy Perry with 10 and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis with 8. Rather improbably, if JT brings home some hardware, it’ll be his first Billboard Music Awards win as a solo artist. For the night’s biggest award, Top Artist, he’ll be facing off against Miley Cyrus, Bruno Mars, Perry and Imagine Dragons.
