Notable Nominations: The 2013 American Music Awards


YouTube may be trending thanks to the introduction of its inaugural music awards, but this November, a stateside classic is returning with its annual ceremony.

On November 24, the 2013 American Music Awards will take over Los Angeles—and television ratings—for its 41st bow. With six nominations, the odds are in Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ favor to leave L.A.'s Nokia Theatre with the most awards in hand. Still, we can't count out Justin Timberlake, whose two number-one albums this year helped him earn five nominations, or Rihanna, RocNation's reigning pop powerhouse.

Prep your ballot with the 2013 American Music Awards nominations list (as announced by Kelly Clarkson and below and head over to AMA.VoteNow.TV to bid for your favorite acts of the year.
