American Music Award Nominees No Surprise

Published: 2006-09-20
There are no big surprises in the list of nominees for the 2006 American Music Awards.

Chances are if you've heard their song playing on multiple radio stations at the same time at some point this year that they're nominated, perhaps multiple times.

Artists like Mariah Carey, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Eyed Peas and Canadian rockers Nickelback all have three nominations under their belt to go with their large amounts of radio play. With two nods a piece are other radio and MTV mainstays like Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Eminem, Jamie Foxx, the Pussycat Dolls, Rascal Flatts, TI, Carrie Underwood and Kanye West.

According to LiveDaily, the award for Favourite Female Rap/Hip Hop artist won't be handed out because less than five people met the "minimum eligibility requirements. Nominations are based on sales data compiled by music-industry magazine Radio & Records and Nielsen Soundscan; winners are selected by the public via a national sampling of about 20,000 people."

You can watch the awards get handed out on November 21 on ABC, they'll be live at the Shrine Auditorium in LA.
