Adele Leads AMA Nominees [FULL LIST]

Posted by & filed under The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

Many claim that the runaway success of Adele’s chart-busting album 21 has singlehandedly saved the music industry, so it’s no surprise that she’ll probably rack up a truckload of awards.

First up, the American Music Awards. The nominations were announced today, and Adele leads the pack with four nods: Artist of the Year, Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist and Favorite Album.

Trailing only slightly behind: AMA sweetheart Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and The Band Perry, with three noms each. Guess it’s a good year to be a female artist. Or someone named “Perry”.

After the cut, the full list of AMA nominees!
