The American Music Awards are set to air this November, and the fan based voting is now closed.
Scheduled to appear are Kid Rock, Miley Cyrus, Bon Jovi, Taylor Swift and Kayne West. For many, the combination of the latter two names might raise some eyebrows. Based on last year’s infamous Kanye West incident on MTV’s VMA awards, fans are unsure of what to expect during this year’s live American Music Awards. The buzz is still quite strong from last year’s event. Taylor Swift won an award, and during her acceptance speech, Kayne rushed the stage, took the mike from Taylor and began to question her capabilities of the win.
This year’s awards show will also be live, and commercials imply many great surprises for fans.
As with many other 90’s boy band fans, I am excited to watch New Kids team up with the Backstreet Boys. This will be the first performance of the two giant groups performing together. New Kids tried making a comeback, and their one single did fairly well a few years back. To present, I don’t believe another single has been released. This is one group that I would like to see make a huge comeback. After all, they have The Right Stuff.
Also scheduled to perform are Kid Rock, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Bon Jovi.
Eminem and Lady Antebellum both received five nominations, putting them at the top of the leader board for most nods. Justin Bieber is just below them, having received three nominations.
Here is the list of main categories and nominees.

Favorite Female Artist-Pop or Rock

Country Music recently had their CMA awards, and many top country stars have another chance to take home the trophy, thanks to the country music categories on the AMA awards.
Favorite Male Artist-country
Favorite Female Artist-Country
The Favorite Female Artist in country music is a tough category to predict. All three of these ladies are powerhouse singers, but based on how Miranda did at the CMA awards, my vote is on her. She cleaned house at the CMA awards. The recently engaged singer to Blake Shelton was nominated for nine awards, winning three of those.
Favorite Male Artist-Rap/Hip-Hop
The American Music Awards are set to air Sunday, November 21st, at 9/8central. Many surprises are scheduled, and anything can happen during live performances. Tune in to catch all the twists and turns that are expected.
