The finalists for the 2014 Billboard Music Awards have been announced in advance of the May 18 telecast, with Imagine Dragons and Lorde leading all artists.

Imagine Dragons and Lorde are finalists in 12 of the 40 categories, with Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis in 11, 10 and eight respectively.

Miley Cyrus backed out of a concert at the very last moment last night.

A rep for the artist confirms that Cyrus came down with a case of the flu and was forced to postpone a show in Charlotte as a result, just 30 minutes prior to when it was scheduled to begin.
