Taylor_Swift_and_Calvin_Harris

The Scottish EDM Artist with (Supposed) Girlfriend Taylor Swift at the Awards

Smith, who was forced to pull out of the ceremony owing to his vocal haemorrhage, accepted his awards remotely. His acceptance speech for top male artist came with a video featuring a number of cue cards. "First, thank you Billboard for this incredible honour," he wrote. "Secondly, thank you to my amazing fans. It's times like this that I realise how lucky I am to have you in my life. Can't wait to get this surgery out of the way so I can sing my ass off for you again."

Billboard Music Awards finalists are based on album and digital song sales, radio airplay, streaming, touring and social-media interactions -- measurements that are tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound. The awards are based on the reporting period of March 10, 2014, through March 8, 2015. In addition to this year's 40 chart-specific categories, fans will choose who gets the Billboard chart achievement award by voting on Billboard.com, BillboardMusicAwards.com and on Twitter; Swift, Azalea and Trainor are up for the only fan-voted prize. The Billboard Music Awards -- produced by Dick Clark Productions -- will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 17, from 8-11 p.m. ET on ABC.
