The 2018 Billboard Music Awards are weeks away and we finally know who’s up for a prize at this year’s show.

Khalid and Bebe Rexha announced this year’s nominations on the Today show, while also learning that they’re each up for a potential win as well. “I’m a New York City girl. I didn’t think I was going to be nominated for a country award!” she reportedly said, referring to her Top Country Song nomination for “Meant to Be” with Florida Georgia Line. Khalid is up for Top New Artist, and is up against Camila Cabello, 21 Savage, Kodak Black, and of course Cardi B.

And while the two artists are indeed notable, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift are making headlines as well. Sheeran scored a total of 10 nominations, while Swift earned four nods for music off Reputation. According to Billboard, nominations are based on statistics like radio airplay, streaming, touring, social media engagement, and album and song sales from the past 12 months

In addition, NBC announced that pop singer Kelly Clarkson is hosting the show. “To prepare for hosting the Billboard Music Awards, I already have 20 costume changes planned,” Clarkson said in a statement. “I will be flying in like my girl P!nk, and calling Amy Schumer and Sarah Silverman for jokes. Well, or I’m just gonna show up and celebrate my favorite artists and get to know a few more. Yeah, maybe I’ll go with that plan.”

As for the performers, Billboard revealed the first round includes Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, and Dua Lipa.

See the full list of nominations below—and catch the 2018 Billboard Music Awards live from Las Vegas on Sunday, May 20 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
