Some of the biggest faces in music will be awarded next month at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards! These awards are based on how much love fans show for the artists’ music — measured by album and track sales, radio plays and concert attendance, to name a few. Some of our favorite stars are in the running for this prestigious award.
Country/pop princess Taylor Swift is one of these finalists, and she totally deserves it! The singer/songwriter just finished her Speak Now World Tour and recording for The Hunger Games soundtrack — and she’s currently working on her next album! Tay is nominated for Top Touring Artist and Top Country Artist. Justin Bieber is also in the running for numerous Billboard Awards. The superstar is releasing his next album, Believe, on June 19 — he’s up for Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Social Artist and more! Megastar (and hair-color chameleon) Katy Perry is nominated for a ton of awards as well — including Top Artist, Top Female Artist, and Top Pop Artist!

Here are the five songs YOU nominated on Facebook and Twitter. Which is the BEST BFF song?
Have you seen the brand new Bruno Mars video yet? If not, stop right now, scroll down and watch! Not only does the “It Will Rain” video have everything we love, love, love about Bruno (swoon-worthy vocals, heartfelt lyrics and, of course, a very crushable cutie), it also has clips from Breaking Dawn! That’s right: The movie doesn’t come out until Nov. 18, but Bruno’s new vid contains a few special sneak peeks (the song IS the lead song on the movie’s soundtrack, after all). Check it out and tell us what you think!
What did you think? What’s your favorite Bruno Mars song? Sound off in the comments and on Twitter!
If you want the chance to listen to the Breaking Dawn soundtrack for free, you better clear your calendar. This weekend, Atlantic Records (the company putting out the soundtrack), will stream the whole album for free on Twilight’s official Facebook page. Starting at 7:30 a.m. PT this Saturday, fans will be able access the soundtrack through a special tab on the Facebook page and listen for free! Since the soundtrack features the likes of Bruno Mars and Christina Perri AND doesn’t go on sale until Nov. 8, this is quite a treat for Twi-hards everywhere.

Bruno Mars can now join the Twilight family (but would he be part of the wolf pack or the vampire clan?) since his song, “It Will Rain” will be on the soundtrack for Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1.
Summit Entertainment released the news via the Twilight Facebook page, along with a photo of the artwork for Mars’ single. It looks like a painting – we like it.
Bruno is a talented musician so we’re expecting this song to be incredible (and most likely a little heart-wrenching).
