The nominations for the American Music Awards 2022

The nominations for the 2022 American Music Awards are in! On October 13, the full list of nominees was revealed, starting with the best new artist category, which was hosted by Becky G on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Dove Cameron, GAYLE, Latto, Måneskin and Steve Lacy earned nominations following their successful year in music.

The rest of the nominations were announced on the American Music Awards’ social media channels, with Bad Bunny leading the way with a total of eight nominations, including his first artist of the year nomination. If Bad Bunny takes home all eight awards, she would tie Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston for the most awards in a single year. Close behind are Beyoncé, Drake and Taylor Swift, who earned six nominations, and Adele, Harry Styles and The Weeknd, with five nominations each.

The American Music Awards will air live on Sunday, November 20 from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. See the rest of the nominations below.
