Taylor Swift Nominated For Billboard Music Awards

Taylor Swift has landed 11 nominations for the Billboard Music Awards-the same number as Maroon 5 and fun.

The country pop powerhouse, whose album Red had the biggest debut sales week of any other album released this year, will be competing in the Top Artist and Top Female Artist categories, as well as in the Top 100, Top Billboard 200, Top Country Artist, Top Country Album, and Top Country Song categories. She will be going up against Maroon 5 in the coveted Top Artist category.

Swift is expected to perform at the awards ceremony, as are Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars and Miguel.

The event is set to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 19, and will be hosted by Tracy Morgan.
