Full nomination list for this year's Billboard Music Awards has just been revealed. Adele, Rihanna, Lady GaGa and Lil Wayne are among the leaders by scoring at least 10 nods each. Also getting multiple noms are duo Redfoo and SkyBlu.
Adele receives the most nods with a total of 18 nominations, LMFAO follow with 17, Riri trails behind them with 13, and both the Mother Monster and Weezy get 10 each. All of them, except for the electro/pop duo, are vying for the coveted Top Artist along with Katy Perry.

In Top New Artist, Scotty McCreery is mentioned as one of the contenders. The singer, who claimed his fame after winning "American Idol" season 10, is facing off Big Sean, Foster the People, Wiz Khalifa and Eminem's group Bad Meets Evil.
