2013 American Music Award Nominations Revealed

It’s that time of year again where the songs that have been overplayed on the radio and stuck in our head all year long battle it out.

 

The 2013 American Music Awards announced its list of nominations early Thursday morning, with Kelly Clarkson and Will.i.am taking the responsibility of revealing the contenders for each category.

 

There were six nominations for first-time nominated Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, making them this year’s leader. The Seattle rap duo, that have been topping charts with their smash hit, “Thrift Shop” and controversial song “Same Love” will be going head to head against the likes of award show veterans Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Bruno Mars for Artist of the Year.

 

Tailing the rap duo for nominations is Mr. Suit and Tie himself, Justin Timberlake and previous AMA winner Taylor Swift, who are each up for five awards. Rihanna, AMA newcomer Florida Georgia Line, and news headliner Robin Thicke follow with four nods for each.

 

And if you thought the award show couldn’t get any better, twerk master herself Miley Cyrus, who just released her new album Bangerz, has revealed that she will be taking centre stage, performing at this years award show. Let’s hope she leaves her teddy bears at home this time. The award show will broadcast live on November 24 from Los Angeles.
