It's a three-way tie: Taylor Swift, Maroon 5 and fun. are finalists in 11 categories for this year's Billboard Music Awards.
Rihanna, Carly Rae Jepsen and One Direction are up for 10, nine and eight trophies, respectively, Billboard also announced on Monday.
Swift, Maroon 5, Rihanna, One Direction and Justin Bieber will compete for the top artist award. Adele's 10-million-selling 2011 album, "21," won top Billboard 200 album last year and is up for the award this year. It will vie with Swift's "Red," Mumford & Sons' "Babel," as well as One Direction's albums – "Up All Night" and "Take Me Home" – both released last year.

It was a familiar feeling for Taylor Swift Wednesday night – and no, not just because she was on stage receiving an award.
Her acceptance of the People's Choice Award for favorite country artist was met with a minor interruption, thanks to presenter Olivia Munn.
More than three years since she was notoriously interrupted by Kanye West at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, perhaps the recently single superstar was just a little more prepared this time around.

Maroon 5's fourth studio album arrives just a few weeks after the 10th-anniversary edition of Songs About Jane, the multiplatinum debut that featured hits like "This Love" and "She Will Be Loved" and won the quintet two Grammys (including Best New Artist).
While they have been consistent performers since then, they've yet to make the same kind of big artistic statement. That trend continues with Overexposed – perhaps a cheeky nod to frontman Adam Levine's group-boosting visibility on The Voice – which finds M5 completely embracing the masses who sent "Moves Like Jagger" to No. 1 last year.

Ashlee Simpson made it a cozy date night with beau Vincent Piazza at a Google and T-Mobile bash inside L.A.'s Mr. Brainwash Studios. And they weren't the only couple sticking together: Miley Cyrus and on-again boyfriend Liam Hemsworth showed off their moves on the dance floor as Maroon 5 serenaded the starry crowd (guests included everyone from Cory Monteith to Paris Hilton to Chris Brown – with hits like "This Love." As for Simpson and her man, a partygoer tells us they were huddled together in a VIP section where they "hugged up and [acted] very sweet with each other." – Jessica Herndon

Adam Levine wouldn't be offended if people thought he was into men. In fact, he'd embrace it.
"If people didn't think there was a small chance I was gay, then I wouldn't be doing my job very well," the Maroon 5 rocker, 32, says in the September issue of Out magazine. "I wouldn't be the front man of a band if that question hadn't come up at some point."
Although he says there's "no way to hide my straightness," Levine – who mentions David Bowie, Mick Jagger and Freddie Mercury – notes that "the best" lead singers of all time are "guys whose sexuality was always questioned."
