Tied with Mrs. Carter for the most nominations is Justin Bieber, whose five nods include Best Male and Best Song. Also nominated in the latter category are Adele, Lukas Graham, Mike Posner, and Rihanna feat. Drake.

Judging by the nominations, Canadians are well-represented in the European music scene – in fact, Calvin Harris is the only non-Canadian in the Best Male category! The Scottish DJ takes on Bieber, Drake and The Weeknd, as well as Shawn Mendes, who’s up for four awards. Brampton, ON native Alessia Cara also scores some love in the Best Push category.
