Check Out the Nominees for the 2015 American Music Awards
Obviously one of the biggest awards shows in the United States is packed with the biggest names in the music industry. The American Music Awards is usually fun and entertaining with multiple live performances. Taylor Swift is currently leading with the most nominations at 6. Ed Sheeran and the Weeknd are both trailing with only 5 nominations each.
Jennifer Lopez will host this year's event so I'm sure she has a wildly huge dance number planned for her opening sequence. To be involved with who wins the awards, fans are encouraged to vote at AMAvote.com where they can cast their support for their favorite star with one vote per category per day.
This year's 2015 AMAs will be broadcasted live from the Microsoft Theater in L.A. on Sunday Nov. 22 at 8:00 p.m. This is so exciting!

I wish I could see more alternative rock artists in the main stream categories. FOB had a big year, it's a shame they aren't nominated for artist of the year. :/
@TessStevens I absolutely agree. For that matter, Hozier should be in that category. James Bay... Oh, I could list all day. Maybe we should organize our own event. Let's have Julian Casablancas host. (Much more viewing time that way!!)
@TessStevens OMG YES!!!! Have we not discussed this yet? Like, I LOVE him. He makes me all squeal-ishly happy. I drive everyone who knows me a wee bit crazy with The Strokes... And when he smiles... Sorry... NOT SORRY! I... Um... I have a varied and interesting taste in men. Lol
