AMA Nominations are out! Is Drake The New King of Pop?

Drake‘s got to be feeling pretty good about himself today – he just broke a record held by Michael Jackson since 1984. That’s back when Thriller changed the music business and MJ was nominated for 11 AMAs in a single year. But Drizzy just blew that record out of the water – this year he’s scored 13 (THIRTEEN!) nominations! Everything from Artist of the Year to Favorite Male Artist plus Favorite Album, Favorite Rap Artist, Favorite Rap Song… you get the idea.


Who, ME???

Check out all of the Nominees below, and let us know how many of those awards Drake will actually end up taking home in the comments!

2016 American Music Award Nominations!

Where The Hell Was Taylor Swift?

The 3+ hour spectacle that is the American Music Awards just wrapped up without a single Taylor Swift sighting – she wasn’t even in the audience for a reaction shot when One Direction sang that song that Harry Styles wrote about her. She clearly wasn’t in the building. So where was she?

Best guess? New Zealand. And I only know this thanks to some intrepid twitter reporters.

So it seems like she was spotted in Auckland this morning. Could be she’s just taking a well-deserved vacation after wrapping up her 1989 World Tour. She might also be hanging out with one of her innumerable BFFs, Lorde.

Luckily, Hailee Steinfeld was on hand to dance in the audience all night, Taylor style.

Good job, squad. Review the AMAs with me this week on Today’s Hits!
