    the fact is that people nowadays care more about the artists personal lives than the artists work, they seem to look for role models 4 their children in the showbusiness(which to me makes no sense,if u cant teach ur kids how to be good people how do u expect a stranger that is probably in their age to do this?)and not 4 real musicians.if we also think of the fact that most people have no education as far as arts r concerned we have the reason why there r so few artists today.that list except from lady gaga,alternative rock nominees and acdc sucks

    @ pls read a book…itz so unfortunate that ur comparing human beings with lower plants and animals, that is why human beings are higher animals. If being gay is the right thing to do why isn’t every one on the planet a single sex also you can’t people of the same sex make babies without having to adopt. Just because quite a number of people are gay doesn’t make it gay. I won’t but a gun to someone’s head because they say they are gay but just dont say it’s completely natural because it is not.
    P.S. ke$ha is one of the most untalented artists of this generation she can sing only with autotune same goes for rihanna…thumbs up for usher now that’s talent

  • Brightside

    Can I respectfully suggest that you read about homosexuality in the Animal Kingdom…
    I’ve included a link to a popular source but there are many others. You’ll find that homosexuality has been known to occur in over 1,500 different species in the natural world. I’ll just repeat that, in the natural world, so, by definition, it is natural. It may not be evolutionarily viable as a reproductive method but it is likely that it serves some obscure evolutionary purpose or it simply wouldn’t exist.
    Do read up about it. There is nothing wrong, abnormal or immoral in being homosexual by nature!
    Please don’t let the prejudices of too many primitive religious cults brainwash you into an intolerant and ignorant view of the subject.

  • Brightside

    And by primitive religious cults I mean Christianity, Roman Catholicism, Islam and just about any other pig ignorant cult that relies on some form of make believe godhead to brainwash people into becoming sheeple. There is no god, there never has been a god and there never will be a god because god does not and has never existed. It is the belief in a god that is entirely unnatural and has no place in the natural world.

    @ZeZeIf being straight is the right thing to do why isn’t every one on the planet attracted to the opposite sex? Who makes these rules up? I sure as hell know I didn’t –choose– to live a life that leaves me prone to torment, bullying and judgements. I didn’t choose to be born the way I was, I -did- choose to live openly. But people will still be ignorant outside of their own bubble. Thankfully I’m past highschool and the stage of my life where disabled kids, black, asian, gay…kids….anyone who was a ‘minority’ (such a Hit.ler attitude) were punched and sneered at just because they weren’t straight and white. There is no right or wrong when it comes to love, sorry if that’s hard for you to accept. Love is ALWAYS the answer. ps. usher sounded just as bad as kesha live on tv the other day

  • Cara

    @Brightside U must really be ignorance thinking that there is no God, thats pure undiluted blasphemy. If it your own opinion that there is no God fine but u dont have to force your opinion on anyone or critise anyone’s believe. It so unfortunate that people like you exist not living for anything. Try and respect other people’s believes. How do you think the world began, lemme guess you think the big bang..we lemme ask you this what happened before the big bang? God exist, he always has and he always will whether you like to accept it or not.

  • Shaun

    @Cara: Why don’t you practice what you preach? You’re offended that someone doesn’t believe in some old bearded man who lives in the sky like you do so you attack their opinion while saying they should respect yours? Hypocrite.

    @bette: The nominations for the American Music Awards are chosen…by record sales. They have ALWAYS been.

  • skylar74

    The comments on here are RIDICULOUS!!! The American Music Awards are based on RECORD sales. If you don’t like the nominations, support the artists you do like and maybe next year you will see them nominated. In the meantime STOP hating on the artists who have sold enough in a year to get a nomination!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • skylar74

    @itsajoke: Adam Lambert was not nominated because his fans didn’t support him by buying his CD/singles…don’t hate fans of other artists because they go out and support their fav’s.

    Lady Gaga is OVERRATED. I grew up with the original Lady Gaga…Madonna. Yes, Gaga can sing and write songs but she is doing NOTHING that hasn’t already been done.

    Beyonce is another OVERRATED artist who’s music holds no weight or substance but her fans support her by buying what she’s selling, like with Gaga. I don’t understand either artists popularity (especially Beyonce’s) but I do understand that they have fans who are loyal and support what they do.

    Justin Bieber, Eminem, Kesha are nominated because their fans have supported their work by buying their CD’s and not downloading them for free!!!

  • backpain

    SHE WOULD WIN Favorite rap artist. :|

  • Musicdes – Songs

    I vote for Chris Brown.

  • gaza king

    this is the worst where is nicki minaj in this award this is sucks. Trey songz is going to sweap that award

  • taylor

    @none i fully 100% agree with you!

  • rach88

    Eminem for the WIN!!!

  • Meg

    This is ridiculous. When did the AMAs turn into the VMAs?

  • trisha

    I’m sure Ke$ha will be the recipient of the artist of the year.

  • Beatles fan

    This is a horrible list

  • jam

    I’m not watching this tonight. Country music is about the only part of the music industry that got something right for once. Kesha? Are you kidding me? Hey, guys, lets get a tramp from the streets and put glitter on her face and make her a huge star. Society these days is so pathetic.

    I hope that Lady Antebellum wins everything they are nominated for. They are representing Country music. Justin Beaver can win everything else as far as I’m concerned because does it really matter? Good artists aren’t nominated in these kinds of award shows.

    Oh, and Jason should take home Male because he worked his ass off.

  • Andrew

    What a crock. The Avett Brothers and Brandi Carlile are the only thing going good in music these days, and the voters are numb to this. Keep picking this cr@p bag of ”artists”. Most young Americans have no taste in music.

  • umassminutemen

    It is a legitimate joke that Pearl Jam is not nominated for these awards. Justin Bieber? Phoenix? The only artist on the list that comes close to Pearl Jam lyrically and in talent and that is Eminem. I guess Muse too. It is just sad that PJ can come out with a number 1 album on the Billboard that has 5 or 6 solid songs and then not be nominated for anything.

  • sarah

    I cannot take these awards. I am like halfway through and Justin Bieber just won over Eminem… WHAT?!?!?!

  • david

    Eminem is the best & is gonna take home all the awards because he was simply spectacular this year.all the best Eminem.
