Billboard Awards 2013: Who Will Win the Milestone Award?

The Billboard Awards tonight should be pretty interesting, because pals Bieber and Swift are up against each other for the Milestone Award, among other reasons.

And they don't just have each other to worry about. The two megastars are also competing with Bruno Mars for the big award. I don't know about you, but I'd say this is pretty stiff competition, even though I am pretty confident I know who is going to take home the prize tonight. My money is on Swift, who has demonstrated strong lyric-writing skills and longevity time and time again. She's also a little older than the Biebs and has spent more time in the limelight than Mars, so I say she's got this in the bag.

What are your thoughts? Will it be "Grenade" crooner Mars, whose songs could bring even the biggest cynic to tears? Or will it be the Biebs, who, in my opinion, is the greatest Cinderella story of all time? I'm still going with T-Swift, who has broken a lot of barriers for females in the music industry. All T-Swift, all the time. She was also named Billboard's Woman of the Year in 2011, so given their appreciation for her, she'd be the expected choice for the award.
