Lemonade star Beyonce and Love Yourself singer Bieber have been shortlisted for five awards each, with Britain's Adele close behind them on four nominations.

Rihanna, Drake, Kanye West, Ariana Grande and The Weeknd could all be looking at multiple wins, too, after finding themselves listed in three categories each.

Beyonce is up for best US act, best video for Formation, best female, best live act and biggest fans, while Bieber has been named for best Canadian act, best song with Sorry, best male, best pop, and goes up against Beyonce for biggest fans.

Adele is set to give both nominee pack leaders a run for their money as she battles Bieber for best song with her track Hello, and Beyonce for best female and best live act.
