One of the most epic nights in entertainment history is about to happen on November 20th and it is none other than the 2016 American Music Awards! Each and every year, the American Music Awards brings out one of the most spectacular and unforgettable award shows honoring all of our favorite musicians and their incredible accomplishments. Now, with the nominations for this year’s event just recently released and with one musician even setting a new record, we can already tell that this year’s AMAs will be absolutely stupendous!

The outstanding AMAs have just recently revealed this year’s nominees and artists including Justin Bieber, Adele, Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, and more are some of the many remarkable and immensely talented musicians who have been nominated. In fact, rapping phenomenon and legend Drake set a new record of having the most AMAs nominations in a single year with a total of 13! Congrats Drake!

Joe Jonas and Rachel Platten announced 6 categories of nominees on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Following, the AMAs took to digital platforms to reveal the remaining nominees by announcing five additional categories on Snapchat and ABC News announced the remaining 17 categories via a livestream.

This year’s award show will be even bigger and better for many reasons, one of which is that there have been two new categories added to the award show, “Tour of the Year” and “Video of the Year.”

The nominees for Artist of the Year are Adele, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Drake, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Rihanna, Twenty One Pilots, Carrie Underwood and The Weeknd. Voting is open now and the 10 nominees will be narrowed down to five based on your votes on Monday, November 14 at 8:59:59am PT. Voting will continue up until Thursday, November 17 at 8:59:59pm PT and the winner will be announced at the award show.

The nominees for New Artist of the Year Un-leashed by T-Mobile are Alessia Cara, The Chainsmokers, DNCE, Shawn Mendes and Zayn. Voting for this category is open on November 2nd and fans can vote up to 100 times per day.
