The 2005 finalists for the 5th annual Billboard R&B Hip-Hop Awards were announced yesterday. Lil Jon, both as a member of The East Side Boyz and as a producer/songwriter earned a total of 7 nominations. Close behind were 50 Cent and Alicia Keys who tied with 6 nominations apiece. Usher also earned 5 nominations. The complete list of categories and nominees is listed below.

“Billboard is once again pleased to honor the best and brightest that R&B and Hip-Hop has to offer,” says Gail Mitchell, senior R&B editor for Billboard. “From Lil Jon and 50 Cent to Alicia Keys and others, these artists have offered some of music’s biggest hits.”

The star-studded event honoring the best of R&B and Hip-Hop music will mark the fifth annual Billboard awards show dedicated to these genres. The ceremony will be held on Friday, Aug. 5, and will conclude the Billboard R&B Hip-Hop Conference. Now in its sixth year, the conference which runs from August 3-5 at the Hotel InterContinental in Atlanta, is the most high-powered networking R&B Hip-Hop gathering of the year.

The Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Awards honor the genres’ most popular albums, songs, artists, and contributors, as determined by the actual sales and radio airplay data that informs Billboard’s weekly charts. Finalists and winners reflect performance of recordings on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop and Rap charts, during the one-year period from the May 29, 2004 issue of Billboard through the May 21, 2005 issue of Billboard. A new artist is considered any artist who has not appeared on a Billboard album chart prior to the March 27, 2004, issue or has not been a new artist finalist in the past.
