The nominations for this year's American Music Awards are out! Carmen and Tyrese announced the nominees for the awards which will be in LA on November 21st. What's cool about these awards is that the nominations were determined by record sales and radio air play but the winners are determined by the public. Here's more:
Mariah Carey, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Eyed Peas and Nickelback lead the nominations with three nods each. Carey, a nine-time American Music Award winner, was nominated for Favorite Female Artist in both the Pop/Rock and Soul/Rhythm & Blues categories as well as Favorite Album in the Soul/Rhythm & Blues category for "The Emancipation of Mimi." The Red Hot Chili Peppers received Pop/Rock nominations for Favorite Band, Duo or Group and Favorite Album for "Stadium Arcadium" along with a nod for Favorite Artist in the Alternative Music Category. Hip/Hop Funk sensation The Black Eyed Peas are up for Favorite Band, Duo or Group and Favorite Album for "Monkey Business" in the Rap/Hip Hop category along with a nomination in the Soul/Rhythm & Blues category for Favorite Band, Duo or Group. Nickelback's hit album "All the Right Reasons" helped earn them three American Music Award nominations. The group is up for Favorite Album and Favorite Band, Duo or Group in the Pop/Rock category and will compete against the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam for Favorite Artist in the Alternative Music category.
