Billboard 2016 Music Awards Christian Artist Finalist


The 24th annual Billboard Music Awards will be telecast this evening from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, beginning at 8 p.m. ET. Hosting for his third time is Ludacris with cohost Ciara. There’s a slew of mainstream musical artist set to perform tonight, but none from the Christian category (what a shame)!

The top nominations go to Hillsong United with 4 , followed by Lauren Daigle and Mercy me with 2 each. Usually the awards for these categories are announced online during the show, so follow either the artist or #BBMAs on Twitter for the announcements.
