Billie Eilish leads iHeartRadio Music Awards nominations

Billie Eilish leads the iHeartRadio Music Awards nominations with eight.

The 18-year-old singer will contest for the prestigious Song of the Year accolade for her track 'bad guy' alongside Lil Nas X's 'Old Town Road' Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello's 'Señorita', Jonas Brothers' 'Sucker' and 'Truth Hurts' by Lizzo.

Billie will also compete against Lizzo - who has six nominations - in the Female Artist of the Year award, for which Taylor Swift, Halsey and Ariana Grande are also in the running.

Male Artist of the Year will be fought out between Ed Sheeran, Khalid, Luke Combs, Post Malone and Sean Mendes.

Lil Nas X is snubbed in that category but tied with Lizzo for the most nominations behind Billie overall.

Best Duo/Group of the Year will be contested between Dan + Shay, Imagine Dragons, Jonas Brothers, Maroon 5 and Panic! At The Disco.

John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises for iHeartMedia, said of the nominations: "The iHeartRadio Music Awards is a true celebration of the music and artists that millions of fans listen to every day on their favorite radio stations across the country. FOX's young and engaged audience has proven to be the perfect home for our iHeart listeners."

Tom Poleman, Chief Programming Officer for iHeartMedia, added: "It's always exciting to see who gets nominated for our iHeartRadio Music Awards.

"This year's nominees represent the music heard all year on our stations and the iHeartRadio app. We can't wait to bring them together for one incredible night of celebration and see who takes home the award in all thirty-plus categories."

The awards will air on Fox live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on March 29, and will also broadcast through the US on iHeartMedia radio stations and the iHeartRadio on demand and streaming service.
