Morgan Wallen has been nominated for six 2021 Billboard Music Awards, but you won’t see him on the telecast.

“Morgan Wallen is a finalist this year based on charting,” producers said on Thursday. “As his recent conduct does not align with our core values, we will not be including him on the show in any capacity (performing, presenting, accepting).”
“It is heartening and encouraging to hear that Morgan is taking steps in his anti-racist journey and starting to do some meaningful work,” they continued. “We plan to evaluate his progress and will consider his participation in future shows.”

Wallen was caught on video using the N-word.
