Jay Z is leading the way in terms of this year’s Grammy nominations, with the rapper up for a whopping nine awards.
Other nominees include the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Justin Timberlake and Pharrell Williams, who all bagged an impressive seven nominations.
Taylor Swift, Lorde, Bruno Mars and Daft Punk are also up for awards at this year’s bash.
Katy Perry and Swift were amongst the performers at last night’s nominations gig, with the ‘Prism’ singer performing her set in Canada while Taylor, who is still on her mammoth ‘Red’ tour, showcasing her section of the concert from Australia.
The two sets were streamed live to the audience at the Nokia Theatre and TV viewers at home.
The awards ceremony will be held on January 26.
Check out the clips of Taylor at the AMA Awards last night:
TAYLOR Swift’s fans have voted her the American Music Awards artist of the year for a third time. Swift won the night’s top honour, giving her a leading four trophies as fans celebrated the women of pop music.
Her win came after Katy Perry dazzled with her show-opening performance, Lady Gaga found another inventive way to grab viewers’ attention, Rihanna starred with her mother and Miley Cyrus closed performances with the assistance of a giant lip-syncing CGI kitty on her song Wrecking Ball.
Swift also won country album of the year for Red and favourite female country and pop/rock artist.
“Red is very different than any album I’ve made before and the reason I was able to do that was because of the fans,” the 23-year-old pop star said.
“I cannot believe what you’ve done in the last year. This album came out almost exactly a year ago and the fact that 6 million of you went out and bought it is crazy.”
Justin Timberlake was next with three wins. One Direction and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis won two awards and Rihanna was given the AMA’s first Icon Award to go with her win as favourite soul/R&B female artist.
Rihanna and her mother took centre stage midway through the show when Monica Fenty presented her pop star daughter with the first Icon Award at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
Rihanna performed Diamonds with an orchestra and took favourite soul/R&B female artist. Justin Timberlake won soul/R&B album, soul/R&B male artist and pop/rock male artist.
Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande was named favourite new artist, Florida Georgia Line won single of the year for Cruise with Nelly, Luke Bryan won favourite male country artist, and favorite rap/hip-hop act Macklemore & Ryan Lewis used their rap/hip-hop album acceptance speech pay tribute to African American teen shooting victim Trayvon Martin.
It was the first win of the night for Macklemore and Lewis, whose album The Heist has been an unexpected hit and made them the AMA’s top nominees with six.
Katy Perry opened the show dressed in a traditional Japanese dress to give a show-starting performance of Unconditionally.
One Direction was at times drowned out by screams during an understated performance of Story of My Life.
Jennifer Lopez nailed the elaborate dance numbers during her tribute to Salsa queen Celia Cruz, taking two dozen dancers through their paces while wearing a shimmering silver dress.
Lady Gaga and R Kelly put on an elaborate production for their song Do What U Want, staging a presidential affair with Kelly playing the president and Gaga a Marilyn Monroe-like mistress.
Miley Cyrus shut things down with a performance that wasn’t quite as over the top as her previous appearances this year but is likely to be talked about just as much.
The camera stayed on Cyrus and the lip-syncing tabby throughout, and the cat ended the song by winking and sticking out its tongue – Cyrus’ signature move.
In the military, βgot your 6β³ means βIβve got your back,β and thatβs the message that country music stars – like Taylor Swift – want to get across to those that have served this country.
In a PSA filmed from backstage at the CMA Awards, Swift, Florida Georgia Line, Kenny Rogers and Kimberly Williams-Paisley urge citizens to βsupport [veterans] as they continue their service at home.β
