Grammy Awards

Many of us were surprised when Dua Lipa beat Album of the Year nominee H.E.R. for Best New Artist at the Grammys, but she’s not going to catch us unaware this time. According to the combined predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users, she’s the frontrunner to win Top New Artist at the Billboard Music Awards with leading odds of 11/2. But these awards are decided differently, and that might actually favor her rival, Juice WRLD. The Billboard Awards are not voted on based on quality, per se. They’re decided by the same metrics that determine the weekly Billboard charts: fan interactions with music, including record sales, online streams, radio airplay and more. Dua Lipa has certainly been a success by that measure, with her self-titled album certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America and three platinum singles in the last year (“New Rules,” “IDGAF” and “One Kiss”). [pmc-related-link href=”https://pages.email.goldderby.com/signup/” type=”SIGN UP” target=”_self”]for Gold Derby’s free newsletter with latest predictions[/pmc-related-link] But Dua Lipa’s album was released in 2017, and so was “New Rules,” which is her biggest hit to date. The Billboard Awards eligibility period ran from March 23, 2018, to March 7, 2019, which wasn’t as active a period for the breakthrough singer. Indeed, she only has two other Billboard nominations this year: Top Dance/Electronic Song (“One Kiss”) and the fan-voted Billboard Chart Achievement Award. Meanwhile, Juice WRLD has seven total nominations, including Top Hot 100 Artist and Top Rap Artist. His debut album from last May, “Goodbye and Good Riddance,” charted higher than Dua Lipa’s (peaking at No. 4) and has gone platinum. His breakthrough single, “Lucid Dreams,” also charted higher than Dua Lipa’s songs (peaking at No. 2), and it has gone four times platinum. “Lucid Dreams” alone is up for four Billboard Awards including Top Hot 100 Song.

So while the odds favor Dua Lipa at the moment, Juice WRLD may have the numbers on his side.

It has been 10 years since the Jonas Brothers performed together at a televised awards show, but NBC and Dick Clark Productions have announced that the trio will make their kudos comeback when they perform at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards. Siblings Nick, Joe and Kevin will perform their recent single “Sucker,” which is appropriate for the occasion since the song recently debuted in the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, marking the Jonas Brothers’ first chart-topper of their career. And it was the first No. 1 debut for a music group in more than 20 years. Throughout their career they have also had two No. 1 hits on the Billboard 200 albums chart. However, the Jonas Brothers haven’t yet won any Billboard Music Awards, neither as a group nor for their solo pursuits. [pmc-related-link href=”https://pages.email.goldderby.com/signup/” type=”SIGN UP” target=”_self”]for Gold Derby’s free newsletter with latest predictions[/pmc-related-link] But the Jonas Brothers have accumulated other prizes as a unit. They claimed Breakthrough Artist at the American Music Awards in 2008, more than a dozen Teen Choice Awards and a few Kids’ Choice Awards. They also earned a 2009 Grammy nomination for Best New Artist, and a couple of MTV Video Music Award nominations as well. The Jonas Brothers join a lineup of previously announced performers including the host of the show, Kelly Clarkson, along with BTS featuring Halsey, Lauren Daigle, Khalid, Panic! At The Disco and Sam Smith with Normani. In addition, Mariah Carey will perform a medley of her hits in celebration of her receiving the Icon Award for her career achievements. Who are you most looking forward to seeing when the awards air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Wednesday, May 1?
