2021 AMA Nominations: Full List

The AMAs added three new classes this yr: favourite trending music (with nominees from TikTok on the yr’s most viral songs), favourite gospel artist (to associate with the returning favourite inspirational artist) and favourite Latin duo or group.

With this yr’s continued growth of the Latin discipline, there are actually as many awards for Latin (5) as there are for pop and nation. That’s outstanding as a result of there weren’t any classes for Latin on the American Music Awards till 1998, when Julio Iglesias took the primary award for favourite Latin artist.

This yr, there are 4 awards every for hip-hop and R&B and one every for rock, inspirational, gospel and dance/digital.

Three classes that have been on final yr’s nominations checklist are MIA on this yr’s checklist: favourite social artist (gained final yr by BTS), favourite artist – grownup modern (gained final yr by Jonas Brothers), and favourite soundtrack (gained final yr by Birds of Prey: The Album).

The AMAs streamlined the names of quite a few genres of their class construction. Pop/rock is now simply pop; rap/hip-hop is now simply hip-hop; soul/R&B is now simply R&B; various rock is now simply rock; modern inspirational is now simply inspirational; and digital dance music (EDM) is now dance/digital.

Morgan Wallen obtained two nods: favourite nation album for Harmful: The Double Album and favourite male nation artist. However a press release on behalf of MRC Reside & Different notes: “Morgan Wallen is a nominee this yr primarily based on charting. As his conduct doesn’t align with our core values, we is not going to be together with him on the present in any capability (performing, presenting, accepting).
