2022 American Music Awards Nominations: The Complete List

Bad Bunny could go down in history with Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston for most AMAs wins in a single year.

Here are this year’s nominees for the 2022 American Music Awards!

Music’s biggest superstars will be honored live from the Microsoft Theater at L.A. Live in Los Angeles. Leading this year’s pack in nominations is Bad Bunny with eight nods and is up for artist of the year for the first time in his career. With a potential record breaking win, if the Puerto Rican rapper wins all eight categories he will go down in history alongside Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston for the most AMA award wins in one year.

Closely behind him are Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Drake who scored six nominations each. With Beyoncé and Swift as this year’s top female nominees, the legendary pop stars will face off in three different categories: artist of the year, favorite female pop artist and favorite pop album.

Though she’s in for some tough competition, Swift currently holds the record for the most wins for artist of the year. Taylor also holds the title for the most AMAs overall at 34.

The ceremony will air live on Sunday, Nov. 20, at at 8 p.m. ET, and via tape delay at 8 p.m. PT, on ABC. A ceremony host has yet to be announced.
