Tonight could be a major moment for The Weeknd. The singer is the most-nominated artist with 19 nods in 16 categories — including Top Artist, Top Male Artist and Top Billboard 200 Artist.

Justin Bieber follows The Weeknd with 12 nominations in 11 categories while Drake and Fetty Wap head into the show as finalists 11 times.

According to Billboard, finalists are based on album and digital song sales, radio airplay, streaming, touring and social engagement.

Over the years, the BBMAs have allowed artists to make some serious style statements, such as Pink’s coordinated outfit with knee-high money-print boots in 2000 and the Spice Girls’ famed platform footwear from 1997.

Last year, models Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn used the event to unveil the Balmain x H&M collection, while Meghan Trainor, One Direction, Rita Ora and Zendaya made the Footwear News best-dressed list for their outstanding shoe choices.
