The nominations for the American Music Awards 2010 (AMA’s) that air tonight at 8pm on ABC are determined by radio play and sales. In short, the biggest, most popular artists get recognized. Tonight’s nominees are led by Eminem and country act Lady Antebellum who both have five nominations. The winners are determined by fan voting.
Here are some of the bigger categories and a few predictions on how I think they will shake down. Favorite Male Artist pits Justin Bieber against Eminem and Usher. I look for Eminem to take this one. Bieber has an enormous fan base and they will vote for him, but this has been Eminem’s year and his red hot single “Love the Way You Lie” ft. Rihanna tore up the charts.
Favorite Female Artist features nominees Ke$ha, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. I would imagine this one will go to Lady Gaga. There is nobody in music hotter right now than Gaga so I think we will see her take this one home.
Favorite Band, Duo or Group features The Black Eyed Peas, Lady Antebellum and Train. While I don’t know much about country music Lady Antebellum is having a huge year. I think they will win it, although I would love to see Train. Train is a seriously talented band and deserves some recognition.
When it comes to Favorite Album we find Justin Bieber, Eminem and Katy Perry facing off again. This is a tough one to call, but I think we will see Eminem take this one home as well, but I wouldn’t be at all shocked to see Bieber win this one.
Probably the most heavily contested award in the Country Music category is Favorite Female Artist where we see Taylor Swift nominated along with Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood. All three are popular and recently Miranda Lambert has been beating Swift at various country music awards shows. But this is not just country music and Swift has a huge pop following so I think she will walk away with this one.
The biggest category of the night is Artist of the Year. Here the nominees are Justin Bieber, Eminem, Ke$ha, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. To me this is a two horse race that comes down to Gaga or Eminem. Gaga has been unstoppable this year so I think she will take this one home as well, but I won’t be shocked if Eminem takes it home.
It is also possible that Justin Bieber could have a big night. He as a fanatical following made up mostly of teen and tween girls who have nothing better to do than get online and vote for him over and over so he could walk away with some trophies.
There are actually 20 categories, but only nine of them will be given away on the air tonight. Tune in at 8pm on ABC to see the awards given out as well as 16 different live performances on the American Music Awards 2010.
