2021 American Music Awards Has Olivia Rodrigo As Top Nominee, Including Artist Of The Year

The 2021 American Music Awards (AMAs) were revealed this morning on ABC’s Good Morning America and Spotify’s morning show, The Get Up, with the remaining nominees announced via the AMAs Twitter account.

For the first time, fans can vote for all AMA categories on TikTok by searching for “AMAs” in-app. The show will be live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Nov. 21, at
8:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC, and will stream the next day on Hulu.

The highlights of this morning’s announcements:

● Pop powerhouse Olivia Rodrigo was the top nominee, making her AMAs debut by scoring seven nominations, including Artist of the Year and New Artist of The Year.
● Five-time AMA winner The Weeknd earned six nominations. The superstar will go up against
Rodrigo in the Artist of the Year category, as well as Favorite Music Video and Favorite Pop Song.
● Close behind with five nominations each are Bad Bunny, Doja Cat and Giveon. The Reggaeton
superstar dominates in the Latin categories, scoring a double nod for Favorite Latin Album, while
Doja Cat, 2020’s New Artist of the Year, is recognized in the Favorite Female R&B Artist and
Favorite R&B Album categories, among others. First-time nominee Giveon received multiple
nominations in his AMA debut, including New Artist of the Year, Favorite Male R&B Artist, and
Collaboration of the Year for his hit song with Justin Bieber, “Peaches.”
● Artist of the Year nominees include Ariana Grande, BTS, Drake, Olivia Rodrigo, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd. Swift is the current record-holder for most wins in this category with six wins, and holds the record for most AMA wins of all time, 32.
● New categories this year are Favorite Trending Song, with nominees from TikTok on the year’s
most viral songs, Favorite Gospel Artist, and Favorite Latin Duo or Group, which rounds out last
year’s expansion of the Latin categories bringing the total to five in the genre.

The AMAs represent the top achievements in music as determined by the fans. Voting for all awards is now open globally via TikTok. Fans can vote once per category per day by searching “AMAs” on TikTok.

Nominees are based on key fan interactions – as reflected on the Billboard charts – including
streaming, album sales, song sales and radio airplay. These measurements are tracked by
Billboard and its data partner MRC Data, and cover the time period September 25, 2020, through
September 23, 2021. The American Music Awards winners are voted entirely by fans.

The “2021 American Music Awards” is produced by MRC Live & Alternative and Jesse Collins
Entertainment.
