Boy band Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, have been nominated for the Billboard Music Awards for the second year in a row. Billboard revealed the nominees for this year's awards on Tuesday.
BTS are nominated for Top Social Artist together with famous names like Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, and Shawn Mendes. The boys won the award in the same category last year, becoming the second K-pop artist to be honored at the annual event after Psy, who won the Top Streaming Song (Video) award in 2013 for "Gangnam Style." Nominations for the Billboard Music Awards are based on album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, routing and social engagement.
