2010 American Music Awards Nominations

2

The nominations are in for the 38th Annual American Music Awards — and Recovery star Eminem and country hitmaker Lady Antebellum are charging the field with five nods apiece, organizers say.

Justin Bieber is a close third, earning four nominations for the fan-voted prizes, while B.o.B., Katy Perry, Ke$ha, and Usher are each up for three awards. Competing for the evening’s top honor of Artist of the Year are Bieber, Eminem, Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry.

“We are happy to congratulate all of the nominees for their accomplishments in 2010. We look forward to an exciting night of music and celebration on Nov. 21,” Orly Adelson, executive producer of the show, and Larry Klein, AMA producer, said in a joint statement Tuesday.

In addition to the stars eagerly-awaited trophies, there are also a host of acts expected to take the stage. And who knows what treats we could be in for? Last year, as you may recall, JLo infamously fell on her well-toned ass after a stage stint gone wrong?! So far, Bon Jovi, P!nk. and Usher have been booked to perform. Additional acts and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.

Winners will be determined by online voting and the American Music Awards. The 2010 AMA will air live on ABC from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles on Nov. 21.
