No surprises at the top of this year's American Music Awards nominations. Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and The Weeknd are the three most nominated artists, as the full list of nominees was revealed on Tuesday morning by Nick Jonas and Charlie Puth.
Swift has six nominations, with Sheeran and The Weeknd just behind holding five nominations each. All three are up for the AMAs' top category, Artist of the Year, for which they'll have to compete against a who's who across music that also includes Luke Bryan, Ariana Grande, Maroon 5, Nicki Minaj, One Direction, Sam Smith and Meghan Trainor.
Swift is also up for Song of the Year ("Blank Space"), Collaboration of the Year ("Bad Blood" with Kendrick Lamar), Favorite Female Artist - Pop/Rock, Favorite Female Artist - Adult Contemporary, and Favorite Album - Pop/Rock (1989).
Sheeran's other nominations are for Song of the Year ("Thinking Out Loud"), Favorite Male Artist - Pop/Rock, Favorite Album - Pop/Rock (x), and Favorite Male Artist - Adult Contemporary.
As for The Weeknd, he too is up for Song of the Year ("Can't Feel My Face"), as well as Favorite Male Artist - Soul/R&B, Favorite Album - Soul/R&B (Beauty Behind the Madness), and New Artist of the Year.
Other nominees announced Tuesday include Walk the Moon for both New Artist of the Year and Favorite Duo or Group - Pop/Rock, Chris Brown getting nods in both the Favorite Male Artist - Soul/R&B and Favorite Album - R&B categories, Sam Hunt picking up three nominations including New Artist of the Year and Favorite Male Artist - Country, and Hozier as a nominee for Favorite Artist - Alternative Rock.
All in all, the AMA nominations list reads pretty much like anyone looking at a Billboard listing would expect it to. All the names are ones that have been circulating on the charts and in the public consciousness all year long, and many of them are awards show favorites like Swift, who routinely cleans up at every ceremony she goes to. It's hard to imagine that she won't be bringing home some more trophies when they're handed out next month.
The full list of nominees is available on their website, and fans can already vote now for their favorites in each category there as well as on Facebook and Twitter. Jennifer Lopez is the hostess of this year's show.
