The Billboard Music Awards are back for their 2021 edition, just seven months after the last (pandemic-delayed) ceremony.

Heading into the show — hosted by Nick Jonas and broadcasting live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles — Super Bowl headliner the Weeknd led the pack as a finalist in 16 categories, including Top Artist. DaBaby was on his heels as a finalist in a 11 categories.

A number of awards were given out on Billboard Music Awards Instagram Live in a ceremony hosted by Matthew Hoffman. The Weeknd racked up seven trophies, including for Top Male Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top R&B Artist, and Top Radio Song. Meanwhile, late rapper Pop Smoke, who received record-breaking posthumous recognition as a finalist in 10 categories, won four awards, including Top New Artist, Top Rap Artist, and Top Rap Album.

Country star Morgan Wallen, a finalist in six categories due to airplay, won Top Country Album, Top Country Artist, and Top Country Male Artist, but his use of a racial slur earlier this year cost him an appearance at the show. First-time finalist Gabby Barrett has scored two wins, for Top Country Song and Top Collaboration, a category voted on by fans.

The Weeknd also picked up another trophy at the start of the ceremony, snagging the award for Top 100 Artist. BTS won for Top Selling Artist.

Awards are based on the Billboard charts — from March 21, 2020, through April 3, 2021. BMA finalists and winners "are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, and social engagement, tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including MRC Data," the publication said in a news release.

At the televised awards show, airing on NBC, Pink will accept Billboard's Icon Award, Drake will receive the Artist of the Decade Award, and Trae Tha Truth will be honored with the Change Maker Award.
