Eminem leads AMA nominations

Eminem leads the nominations for the upcoming American Music Awards (AMAs) with five nods. The full list of nominees was announced in Los Angeles yesterday and Justin Bieber received four nominations, while B.o.B, Katy Perry, Ke$ha and Usher were all nominated for three awards each. The Favorite Male Artist – Pop or Rock category will be a tough competition, with Eminem facing Justin Bieber and R&B star Usher. The rapper could also win the prize for Recovery, which is nominated in the Favorite Album – Rap or Hip-Hop category. In the coveted Artist of the Year group, he’ll be up against Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and Ke$ha. The nominees were chosen from BigChampagne’s Ultimate Chart, which ranks America’s most purchased and listened to music based on sales, radio and television airplay, internet streaming, videos watched and “additional online metrics” which include activity on social-networking websites. The 38th annual AMAs will take place on November 21 in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre.

    Actually, you should check the facts because it is reported that Eminem has five AS WELL AS Lady Antebellum. Or are County Artists to insignificant to mention?? I know they have my vote!!

    I really like Eminem – but don’t really understand why he’s in the same category as Bieber? (I know its the pop/rock category, but seriously?!)

    I didn’t even know anyone still listened to Eminem.
