The nominees are here for the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, and from the look of things, Taylor Swift and Sam Smith are totally crushing it with 14 and 13 nominations, respectively. So prepare yourselves another night of just so much dancing…

Although, Iggy Azaela isn't far behind with 12 nominations but she’s yet to make an appearance in Taylor's BFF circle so it’ll definitely be a Taylor and Sam kind of night! The awards air live from Las Vegas Sunday, May 17 at 8 pm ET on ABC.
