Adele leads the American Music Award Nominations

Grammy winner Adele has had an incredible year with two number one singles (“Rolling in the Deep” and the current chart topper “Someone Like You”) and the best-selling album of the year in America and the world, 21. And things just keep getting better as the singer landed the most American Music Award nominations today with 4 nominations. I’m betting she wins all of them too… She will have some competition from the likes of multiple nominees Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift to name a few. Other artists who grabbed several nods include Bruno Mars, The Band Perry, Jason Aldean, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Beyonce. Take a look at all the nominees below and head to the show page here to vote for all your favorites. Watch the show live on ABC on Sunday Nov. 20th at 8pm.
