Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, Ed Sheeran Lead AMA Nominations

The American Music Awards Nominations are in, and The Weeknd, Taylor Swift, and Ed Sheeran are the leaders of the pack. Swift has been having one amazing year, and her six nominations are just the icing on the cake. Both Sheeran and The Weeknd follow the pop superstar with five nominations each, according to USA Today’s list of nominees.

Swift, who opened the show last year with her hit single “Blank Space,” will be heading back, but will she walk away with the most awards? Singer Joe Jonas and Charlie Puth appeared on Good Morning America Tuesday morning, where they announced all of the nominees, which also includes, Ariana Grande, rapper Nicki Minaj, One Direction, and country superstar Luke Bryan.

The real battle comes at the end when 10 artists are looking to score the highest award of the night — Artist of the Year. This year has a great selection of artists from different genres, including Taylor Swift, first-time AMA nominee The Weeknd, Sheeran, Bryan, Grande, Minaj, Maroon 5, One Direction, Sam Smith, and Meghan Trainor. Each artist has topped the charts in their category, but only one will be able to walk home with the award.
