Post Malone Leads American Music Award Nominations

With the 47th annual American Music Awards just less than a month away, the fan-voted award show nominees have finally been announced.

Leading the lineup of nominees is two-time AMA winner Post Malone, coming through with a total of seven nominations, including Artist of the Year, Collaboration of the Year, and Favourite Male Artist- Pop/Rock. Close behind with six nominations is first-time AMA nominee, Billie Eilish, and the queen and pop herself, Ariana Grande.

Toronto natives Drake and Shawn Mendes also earned nominations this year, with Drake nominated for three awards including Favourite Artist- Rap/Hip-Hop and Favourite Male Artist-Pop/Rock. Mendes also got two nods for Collaboration of the Year and Favourite Social Artist.

Drake, Grande, Post Malone, and Taylor Swift will all battle it out for the night’s top award, Artist of the Year. Currently, Swift holds the record for most wins in this category with four under her belt. At a count of 23 AMA wins to date, if she takes home two more trophies at this year’s show, she’ll break the record for most AMA wins of all time, beating out Michael Jackson. She’s nominated for five awards so the chances of her making AMA history are high.

Voting is now open for all AMA categories where fans can vote up to 30 times per day until Wednesday, November 20. Don’t miss the American Music Awards, on Sunday, November 24 airing live from the Microsoft Theater at 8 p.m. ET on CTV.
