Another day, another music awards show has revealed its long list of nominees.

Yesterday, we heard from the Grammy Association when they announced, officially, who would be taking the stage during their live concert show. The show, which takes place in early December will announce the nominees for the award show while also giving viewers performances throughout the show.

Today, the American Music Awards got their day by revealing all their own nominees. Coming out on top with six nomination were Macklemore and Ryan Lewis all for their hit song, “Thrift Shop.” Coming in right behind them with five nominations a piece are  Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift.

No only were the nominees for the event, due to take place on November 24, the performers for the event were also unveiled. Imagine Dragons will be taking the stage as well as Miley Cyrus whose performance, we can already predict, will be nothing but good, old-fashion white trash nonsense.

Winners will be chosen by the fans who can start voting for their favorites online. For now, check out the full list below and start writing up who you want to win in a little cheat sheet so you can head on over to the website to start voting.
