2014 American Music Awards Nominations: Iggy Azalea Nabs Six Nods, John Legend and Pharrell Earn Five
After a week filled with drama that included screaming at a paparazzo, Iggy Azalea receives some good news on Monday (Oct. 13). The Aussie rapper nabbed six nominations for the 2014 American Music Awards, including one nod for Artist of the Year.
In addition to Azalea, Artist of the Year nominees include Beyonce, John Legend, Eminem, Lorde, Pharrell Williams, Luke Bryan, One Direction and Imagine Dragons.
Other artists with multiple nominations include John Legend, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams with five mentions each, while Lorde is up for four trophies. Surprisingly, Beyonce is only up for three trophies considering that she had a phenomenal year with her self-titled album.
The AMA nominees are based on fan votes and industry tabulations from radio airplay, streaming, social activity and album and digital singles sales.
ABC will air the AMAs live from Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on Nov. 23 at 8PM ET.
