The Nominees for the "AMAs" Have Been Announced

Oct 10, 2012 -- 5:38am

The nominees for the "40th Annual American Music Awards" were announced yesterday . . . and RIHANNA and NICKI MINAJ lead everyone with four nominations.  The ceremony will air live on Sunday, November 18th . . . but until then, fans can vote for their favorites at AMAvote.com.


Now, that we've all had the chance to regroup from the SHEER HYSTERIA of Columbus Day Weekend, we can get back to the REAL business at hand:


The nominees for the "40th Annual American Music Awards" were announced yesterday . . . and RIHANNA and NICKI MINAJ lead everyone with four nominations.


AMA nominees are determined using a formula that weighs artists' music sales, prevalence on radio and TV, Internet streams and videos . . . plus, "additional online metrics," which include "social-media activity."


ABC will air the ceremony live on Sunday, November 18th.  So far, CHRISTINA AGUILERA is the only performer that has been announced.


This is the first ceremony since DICK CLARK'S death.  He created the "AMAs" . . . so naturally the show has a big tribute planned.


As usual, YOU will choose the winners.  Voting is open NOW at AMAvote.com.  Before casting your vote, you'll have to sign in through Facebook . . . or provide an email address to register.


Here are your nominees . . .
