Justin Bieber, who famously dated Selena Gomez, isgoing head-to-head with his exs new boyfriend, The Weeknd, for the Top Artist award.


Of course, theyll also be competing against Adele, Beyonc, The Chainsmokers, Drake, Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Rihanna, and Twenty One Pilots.

If youre thinking you spot another awkward ex-couple among those nominees, you are correct.

Rihanna and Drake are also competing with each other, and I think I speak for all of us when I say Im still not over the fact that those two couldnt make things work.

Remember happier times?

Anyway, you arent going to want to miss a second of the music, the speeches, the subtle shade, or side-eyes coming from music royalty this weekend, so make sure you clear your schedule now.

If you want to get in on the action beforehand, you can cast your vote for TopSocial Artist and the Billboard Chart Achievement Award presented by Xfinity.
