    Eminem; Lady Antebellum; Justin Bieber followed; B.o.B, Katy Perry; Usher; Ke$ha……this is the WORST list I have ever seen.

  • http://www. V

    @Darren: even eminem?

  • Ranoey

    Why can’t it just be Favorite RAP artist since they can’t do female since Nicki is the only female rappers busting her behind off? Why can’t they just add her in with the males? And trust me… SHE WOULD WIN Favorite rap artist. :|

  • Darren

    @V: Eminem is a homophobic TW@T who’s now playin the reverse racism Victim card, he can walk off a cliff for all I care. As for his music he hasn’t brought anything new to the game for years.

  • Ranoey



    KE@$HA for ALBUM OF THE YEAR????????

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH WHAT A JOKE! same goes for bieber….all of them actually

  • Leila

    Gaga should have been nommed Album Of The Year….well I hope she wins everything else she’s nominated in.
    & I hope Shakira wins something <3

  • ewwww

    i hope chris brown and taylor swift win NOTHING.

  • Jason

    lame list tbh

  • bette

    This list looks like there are no other better choice and talented singers/artists existing nowadays. They are the same artists again and again. Getting tirede of this. It seems to me these people are chosen because of their popularity and how many album and singles they sold. Actually most of these artists can sing and rap, but being talented? that´s an exaggeration!

  • Jonte

    Jason Durulo, B.o.B, TMcCoy, and Train are the worst ones from this entire list.

  • yawn

    Predictable list, predictable winners.

  • none

    Why the h*el*ll Do we have to like gays?
    I just don’t like it.
    And sorry to remind you, but nature didn’t make us to be gay, but to be straight.
    This is the only way to gat praignant.

  • http://www. :)

    @Leila: GAGA WILL SWEEP.

  • Milo


  • Milo


  • please read a book….

    @none: :You sound quite young so I won’t get mad at you…..I guess your parents just told you what they wanted to. Nature didn’t make me straight otherwise I would be attracted to the opposite sex. Asexuality, Bisexuality, Homosexuality and Heterosexuality all exist in Plant and Animal Nature as well as us humans (Pansexuality exists in Humans only).

  • Catchy

    buuuuuurn in hell you all retarded so called artists

  • TT

    @none: I’m sorry to remind you but your mother dropped you on your head a baby.

    PS. what a boring predictable list…ZZZZZZ

  • hannah

    @none: i am adopted because my mum could never pregnant………what’s your excuse for that? i don’t like your mindset at all.

  • XOXO

    I wish Sade & Vampire Weekend would win something but we all know who the winners will be..

  • Ana

    really poor year for music awards. VMA, EMA now AMA everywhere the same “artist”.

  • [I n F a m o u s l y C o o L]

    travis mccoy’s not a new artist. ahahaha

  • the truth

    Hope chris brown win award. He really desreve to win one.Love Eninem win one too. Both have had a hrad time coming back in the music scene. for the ladies Hope the ke$he win too.

  • Sadie

    I swear if Justin Bieber wins more awards than Eminem… The world is seriously messed up- I think I will start believing that the year 2012 will be our last.. thanks a lot JB :<

  • CB

    Chris Brown for the Win.

    Lady Gaga for the Win also.


    man RiRI snubbed

    JJ must be gutted

  • Bree


    I don’t mind Katy Perry or Usher, but JB, seriously?!
    People need to listen to real music, not generic, auto-tuned crap!
    I wish that real artists were nominated, such as Green Day or the Train.

  • Valerie

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! My two faves, Rihanna and Chris Brown, are nominated for best Male & Female R&B artists again! I know they’ll both win, I’m just praying and keeping my fingers crossed that they both perform! Yeah 3X and Only Girl totally rock!

  • toni

    NO disrespect, but the artist of the year and breakthrough artist of the year look like a shitty and horrible list. That list alone shows the decline of the music industy and to tell you the truth, if a artist doesn’t win even though thry may deserve a win, I hope they don’t get angry and mad becuase I personally wouldn’t want to be apart of this horrible ceremony. It’s probably gonna be broing like the VMA’s due to the lack of talent that will perform.
    Besides that I hope Carrie wins, Shakira wins, Sade or Alicia wins, B.o.B wins, and even though I personally can’t stand them for different reasons, I hope Gaga and Eminem win becuase those people along with maybe Chris Brown and the lesser known categories are the only talented people I see on this list.
    I’ll just watch the AMA’s on Youtube when the popular and nominated artist (Lionel Ritchie, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Barbra Streisand,Bee Gee’s and etc.) were the most talented.

  • GagaFanGirl

    Gaga will win.

    Justin Biever? Lawd when will he disappear?
    Didn’t he embarrass himself enough at the VMA’s .. the biotch was lip syncing.
    Twilight needs to die, and Taylor Swift sucks.

  • Amy

    @ewwww: Hey genius, Taylor already won ARTIST OF THE YEAR last year. If she had a new album out, she would probably sweep the awards this year too.

  • Diepmayer

    Us music industry is so lame recently……it’s so dark

  • brenda

    everybody talks about many good songs got?..I only remember that one “ name is.”.. and stop right there!, I’m not defending Justin bieber,but I don’t like them,and keshia??…that girl is so new..oh no…there are good too like katy perry,black eyed peas, lady antebelum,shakira ..but the best is Lady gaga.

  • brenda

    I forgot..and I like B.O.B too!!

  • hello1

    really cause Best Female Artist can go to either Lady Gaga or Katy Perry, my pick is Lady Gaga but Katy Perry had a huge summer with California Girls and Teenage Dream. Lady Gaga is the better artist though so who knows!

  • itsajoke

    When Justin Bieber and Ke$ha continue to get nominated in these awards shows,there’s something WRONG! Mediocre talent best!

    Where’s the REAL talent….Adam Lambert should be on that list. His talent is unsurpassed!

    AMAs +ABC = huge fail!!!!!!

  • mel

    What a crappy list!

    Where are all the ‘real’ bands??
    30 seconds to mars should have been nominated for ATLEAST one award!!

    Artist of the Year
    Justin Bieber
    Lady Gaga
    Katy Perry

    Are they serious?? Sure two of them maybe ok to listen to if intoxicated at a club but seriously???

  • @yawn

    Spot on.

    Predictable list,predictable winners

    With the exception of a couple of innovative artists,the whole list screams BORING and MEDIOCRE talent.

    I guess I know what I’ll be doing with my evening.

    No AL,no AMAs!!!

  • Jennifer

    I hope Lady GagGag wins NOTHING!

  • Robert

    I want to Bieb to win all four — and upset the whole show! Damn, that would be fun to watch and experience. Yeah! He’s worked hard for his short time in the limelight. Let them all eat cake! hahahahahah. You go, Justin! The rest can just wait another year.

  • oy

    I’d rather listen to whales mating than Justin Bieber.

  • Jokergurl

    I think Eminem and Lady Gaga pretty much have this one wrapped up with a nice little bow on it. I think Enrique’s got the Latin artist thing wrapped up too.

  • Rachelsun

    Travie is a new SOLO artist that is what the breakthrough is for. The album Lazarus is a great listen and fun.

  • Brightside

    Can’t stand Justin Beiber! How old is he? Eleven! I’m all for encouraging babies who have a talent in something but to hail them as musical superstars….hell….they’re just freaking bubbies! Save the awards for those who are more than just a tweeny girl’s hormonal crush, those who have built up their career with acumen, talent and versatility! Eminem’s OK…but Beiber…back to kiddie school with him!

  • soso

    i hope chris brown < rihanna jb and eminem win

    but why are lady gaga >katy berry<tylor swift nominated they are the worst

  • GAGA!

    Artist of this year will LADY GAGA~!!!!

  • SHUT UP!!!!!!!

    @itsajoke:LEAVE KESHA ALONE!!!!! Adam will hate you for cussing his friend and he said Justin B was a good kid, really polite when he met him so shut up!! LEAVE KE$HA AND JB ALONE!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www. ROFL.

    @Bree: Train and Greenday? LMAAAAAAO! Get some taste Train’s one of the worst bands ever like Nickleback.

    GO Gaga, Vampire Weekend, Alicia & Shaki.

  • noscrub

    The music industry is full of far too many’artists with very little genuine talent. It’s all about their sorry personal lives and t’heatrics.
