This morning, Fall Out Boy's bassist Pete Wentz teamed up with rapper Ludacris on Good Morning America to announce the nominations for the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. The unlikely musical duo revealed the nominees for the award show's five biggest categories, and Sam Smith and Taylor Swift both have something to be very happy about. The pop stars continued their streak of being nominated for basically every music award ever, and each nabbed nominations in four out of the five categories - the most out of any other artists. 

The rest of the nominees for the award show's 36 other categories will be announced throughout the day on the award show's official twitter by Chrissy Teigen and Empire's Jussie Smollett. But until then, here's the nominees for the biggest categories.
