Michael Jackson and Taylor Swift Are Big Nominees on 2009 AMA
Organizers of the American Music Awards announced the nominees for the 2009 AMA on Tuesday, with country superstar Taylor Swift and the late King of Pop both received the most nominations.
On the list that was announced by Paula Abdul, American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert and Snoop Dogg, 19-year-old Swift received six American Music Awards nominations – including favorite female country music artist, favorite female pop artist and artist of the year.
Michael Jackson was on second place with five nominations, including Artist of the Year and Favorite Male Artist in both the pop/rock and soul/R&B genres. Followed by Eminem who got four, while Beyoncé, Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, Kings of Leon and T.I. each received three.
All will compete at the November 22 ceremony at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, in which there will be performances by Adam Lambert, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, and Black Eyed Peas. Nominees are determined by radio airplay and retail sales, while members of the public determine the winners through online voting.
This marks the third year that online voting has been available, but it is the first time in the show’s 37-year history, that fans will be able to determine the final four nominees of the T-Mobile Breakthrough Artist Award by voting on ABC.com or amavote.com.
