Norteño fans got a nice treat yesterday with the announcement of the latest batch Billboard Mexican Music Award nominees. Artists ranging from Gerardo Ortiz to Lucero were recognized for their contributions to the Regional charts.

The late Jenni Rivera actually racked up a slew of noms, including Artist of the Year and Song of the Year. She was also recognized in the Digital Download category, acknowledging her huge posthumous resurgence.

Rising stars 3Ball MTY also got a nice amount of love. They are up for Best Cumbia Artist, Song of the Year and Digital Download Artist (against La Diva de la Banda).

But it was Gerardo who proved to be the big leader. He scored a total of 14 nominations, which makes us think he’ll walk away with a bucket full of trophies by the end of the night.
