Ludacris is one cool dude, and because he's one cool dude he's been enlisted for the fourth consecutive year to host one of the coolest awards shows, the 2017 Billboard Music Awards, which happen on Sunday, May 21.

Shawn Mendes, music sensation of 2017, is up against Adele, Drake, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, and Rihanna at this year's Billboard Music Award, and the 18-year-old "Stitches" hitmaker is blown away by his BMA nominations.

After "One Dance", Drake's hit collaboration with him and Kyla, was shockingly ignored at the Grammys, it has gone on to score him seven nominations and a better chance of winning. Other of Shawn Mendes's nominations at the Billboard Music Award 2017 are top male artist and top social artist.
