AMA Nominees Announced

Melanie Roloff

There are many popular entertainment award shows, one being the American Music Awards (AMA). The nominees for this year’s award show were announced this Thursday, Oct. 28 and there are some great names in the roster.

Starting off with probably the biggest category, Artist of the Year, the well known singers listed include Ariana Grande, BTS, Drake, Olivia Rodrigo, The Weeknd, and my personal favorite artist, Taylor Swift. Highlighting Rodrigo, also featured in the Favorite Trending Song, New Artist of the Year, Favorite Music Video, Favorite Female Pop Artist and few more, she has become a world hit in less than a year. Rodrigo’s fame began in her appearance in “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, and in January of 2021 she released a song called “drivers license.” This song blew up, and eventually led to her releasing her debut album, “SOUR.”

Other categories in the awards include Collaboration of the Year, Favorite Pop Duo or Group,  Country and Hip-Hop categories. There are also Favorite Latin categories, Rock and Inspirational. 

I am looking forward to seeing who wins which category and am hoping that some of my favorite artists win at least one award.
