2010 American Music Awards Nominees

Mmmm yeah, the votes are in. These are the nominees for this year's American Music Awards. I guess I'll be rooting for Eminem, Usher, B.o.B, Drake and Katy Perry.

From Billboard.com:
Eminem and Lady Antebellum lead the nomination race for the 2010 American Music Awards, both with five nominations. The nominees were announced today (Oct. 12) in Los Angeles by emcees Taio Cruz and Demi Lovato.

Eminem's nominations include Artist of the Year, as well as both Pop/Rock and Rap/Hip-Hop genres for Favorite Male Artist and Favorite Album awards. Lady Antebellum is nominated for Favorite Band, Duo or Group in the Pop/Rock and Country categories, as well as Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist, Breakthrough Artist and Favorite Country Album awards.

Justin Bieber received four nominations, while Katy Perry, Ke$ha, B.o.B and Usher all tied for third with three nominations each. Bieber and Perry join Eminem in the Favorite Pop/Rock Album category, as well as the Artist of the Year category alongside Lady Gaga and Ke$ha. Usher's nominations include Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist, Favorite R&B/Soul Male Artist and Favorite R&B Soul Album for "Raymond v Raymond."
