The Weeknd Leads AMA Nominations … After Taylor Swift Of Course



On Tuesday morning, the nominees for the 2015 American Music Awards were announced and shocker … Taylor Swift is leading the pack with six nods. But another big nominee making the list the year: The Weeknd.

The “Can’t Feel My Face” singer has been nominated for a whopping five nominations, a tie with Ed Sheeran who also garnered five nods.

Nicki Minaj has also earned three nominations, including Best Artist. For the coveted category, Minaj is up against Luke Bryan, Ariana Grande, Maroon 5, Nicki Minaj, One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Taylor Swift, Meghan Trainor and The Weeknd.

By the way, Minaj did take to Instagram to thank the AMAs for the love …  So it looks like we are clear of any awards show controversy like the this year’s MTV VMAs.

“Thank you to the #AMA’s for these nominations,” she wrote.
