American Music Awards Noms: Macklemore Leads All With 6


On Thursday morning, Kelly Clarkson and appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America to discuss which talented performers are nominated for 2013 American Music Awards.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis led the pack, raking in six nominations (including a nomination for “Favorite Artist of the Year” and “Favorite Single of the Year”). Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake followed in pursuit, each nabbing five nominations.

The AMAs will take place Novemeber 24, and will be broadcast live from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. This year’s AMAs will be unlike any other since the entire show will be distributed via digital stream on,,, Time Warner Cable’s Facebook page, and on several Cumulus Radio websites. At this morning’s AMAs press conference in NYC, Lance Bass announced that this year’s show will “without a doubt, be the most social AMAs ever.”

We are so excited for this year’s AMAs — especially since performances by Miley Cyrus and Imagine Dragons have been confirmed! (Will Miley outdo her infamous VMAs performance? Only time will tell…)
