Singer/songwriter Jason Derulo was on hand Wednesday to deliver the news on “Good Morning America” regarding the 2014 Billboard Music Award nominees.

Lorde and Imagine Dragons, first-time Billboard nominees, received the most nominations at 12 each. Justin Timberlake garnered 11 nods, while Katy Perry scored 10, Miley Cyrus at nine and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis with eight noms.

Imagine Dragons have had quite a year with their hit single “Radioactive.” It made Billboard history back in February for spending 77 weeks on the Hot 100 chart. Lorde made Grammy history as the youngest artist to win song of the year.

The 2014 Billboard Music Awards will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Hometown rockers Imagine Dragons are from Vegas, where they’re likely to get a huge reception from the crowd. Mark your calendars for Sunday, May 18 at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
