Rihanna and Nicki Minaj have been in the headlines all week, not in a positive way though. But today, it’s all about positive vibes as the two got the most nods in the American Music Awards nominations! That’s right. Fans will be happy to know that they both got four nominations each for the 40th annual AMAs.
Rihanna is up for the most coveted Artist of the Year, Favorite Female Artist for Pop/Rock, Favorite Female Artist for Soul/R&B and Favorite Album for Soul/R&B.
Whereas, Nicki is also up for Favorite Female Artist: Pop/Rock, Favorite Album: Pop/Rock, Favorite Artist: Rap/Hip-Hop and Favorite Album: Rap/Hip-Hop. These two have some very tough competition in each category so we will see on which one they come up on top.
Other nominees for the 40th AMAs are Justin Bieber, Maroon 5, One Direction, Drake and Usher who all got three nods each. It’s a bit disappointing for Taylor Swift and Adele because each of them just got one nominations each.
Since the new artist category is also something that that you folks watch out for so the nominees for this are J. Cole, Fun, Gotye, One Direction and Carly Rae Jepsen.
These are basically the AMA nominees to watch out for at the 40th awards night that will take place at the Nokia Theater this coming November 18. Who are your bets?
