The nominations are based on Billboard’s music charts from February 27, 2012 to February 24, 2013, taking into account ”album sales and downloads, track downloads, radio airplay and touring as well as streaming and social interactions on Facebook, Twitter, Vevo, Youtube, Spotify and other popular online destinations for music.
Prince will be honored with the Billboard Icon Award at this year's show as well.

The 2013 Billboard Awards will air live from Las Vegas hosted by Tracy Morgan on May 19 at 8 pm on ABC.

I will definitely be tuned in to see a possible melt down if Harry Styles' group One Direction beats out Taylor Swift with more awards...that chick is crazy.
