Rihanna, Nicki Minaj Lead This Year’s American Music Awards — Nominees In Full

Nicki Minaj and Rihanna lead American Music Awards

This year’s AMA nominations are pretty surprising as Rihanna and Nicki Minaj lead the noms with four each, while Drake, Maroon 5, One Direction, Justin Bieber and Usher all share the title for three nominations. The award show which will go live next week Sunday on ABC has revealed this year’s full list of artists who have been nominated for an award.

Rihanna is up for ‘Artist of the Year’, ‘Favourite Female Artist – Pop/Rock’, ‘Favourite Female Artist – Soul/R&B’ and ‘Favourite Album – Soul/R&B’ for Talk That Talk, while Minaj’s noms are ‘Favourite Female Artist – Pop/Rock’, ‘Favourite Artist – Rap/ Hip Hop’, ‘Favourite Album – Pop/Rock’ and ‘Favourite Album – Rap/ Hip Hop’ for Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.

It will definitely be interesting to see these two people go head-to-head against each category to see who can win more, seeing that they have a little feud going on. According to TMZ, when Drake and his crew (including Nicki) went up to collect the rapper’s award at this year’s MTV Music Awards, Rihanna turned to her friend and said ‘I hate these a**holes,’ which seems quite shocking since the two have collaborated together in the past.

Nevertheless, we’ll just have to wait til next week. For now, here’s the full list of nominees for this year’s American Music Awards:
