It's Lorde's world and we're just living in it. The Billboard Music Award nominees were announced today, and the 17-year-old singer is nominated for the first time...in a whopping 12 different categories!

The only other act with that many nods is Imagine Dragons. The "Team" singer, who's up for Top New Artist, will certainly have some competition from more seasoned performers in the Top Female Artist category. She's competing with Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and Katy Perry for that honor.

She shared her reaction to the news on social media in her typical candid style, Tweeting: "Sh*t I got nominated for 12 billboard awards?" Lorde apparently found it funny she's nominated in the rock category, adding: "Including best rock artist/album/song haha ~RAWK~."

Here's a list of everyone who's nominated in every category for a Billboard. Tune in on Sunday, May 18 to ABC to see who wins!
