Taylor Swift's mega-selling 1989 album has earned the pop star 14 nominations at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.

Swift's nominations include top artist, female artist, Billboard 200 album for 1989 and Hot 100 song for Shake It Off.

Sam Smith is behind Swift with 13 nominations, and the singers will battle one another in eight categories, including the night's biggest prize, top artist. Ariana Grande, One Direction and Katy Perry are also up for the top award.

Ludacris, who will host the 17 May awards show with Chrissy Teigen, announced some of the nominees Tuesday on ABC's Good Morning America alongside Pete Wentz. The rest of the finalists were announced at a press conference in Los Angeles.

Swift's 1989, which moved 1 million copies in its first week, has sold more than 4.6 million units since its October release. For top Billboard 200 album, it will battle Smith's Grammy-winning In the Lonely Hour, Ed Sheeran's X, Maroon 5's V and That's Christmas to Me from the a cappella group Pentatonix, which won its first Grammy this year.

For top Hot 100 song, Swift's Shake It Off and Smith's Stay With Me will compete with John Legend's All of Me, Meghan Trainor's All About That Bass and Fancy from Iggy Azalea, who earned 11 nominations. Azalea is nominated twice for top rap song with Fancy and Black Widow.

Swift, who has won 12 Billboard Music Awards throughout her career, will also compete with herself in the top streaming song (video) category with Shake It Off and Blank Space.
