Other top nominees include Lil Nas X, Billie Eilish, Khalid, Lizzo and Kanye West.

Post Malone leads the nominations for the 2020 Billboard Music Awards with a total of 16.

The rapper-singer-songwriter is up for awards including top artist, top male artist and top Billboard 200 artist. He also earned two noms in the top rap song category. His 16 total noms put him one nom shy of missing his own record of 17 nominations in 2019.

Meanwhile, other top nominees include Lil Nas X with 13, Billie Eilish with 12, Khalid with 12, Lizzo with 11 and Kanye West with nine (including four in the gospel song category). Lil Nas X, Lizzo and Eilish are first-time nominees, along with Harry Styles and Jonas Brothers.

Taylor Swift also is nominated in six categories. If she wins at least five, she she could break the record held by Drake for most wins by any artist of all time.

Post Malone 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. (Lil Nas X could tie that if he wins every category in which he is nominated.)

Kelly Clarkson will host the 2020 BBMAs, which are set to air live Oct. 14 on NBC from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The show is produced by Dick Clark Productions, which shares a parent company with The Hollywood Reporter.

The show was rescheduled from its original date of April 29 due to the pandemic, but the awards are based on the original eligibility period of March 23, 2019, through March 14, 2020. This eligibility period remains intact "intact to recognize and honor the chart-topping artists and musical successes achieved and to maintain consistent tracking periods for future shows."

Fan-voted categories this year include Billboard Chart achievement award, top social artist and top collaboration. Voting opens on Oct. 1 and will be available on TikTok.
