Adele Leads American Music Awards Nominations

    The nominations for the annual “Is this really an awards show” American Music Awards were announced this morning, and unsurprisingly, the nominations were topped by Adele, who got noms in Album of the Year, Artist of the Year, Adult Contemporary Artist, And Favorite Female Pop Or Rock Artist. Expect her to take home all of those, probably (is there a blog that handicaps the odds of American Music Awards?). 

    The show is set for Nov. 20, at 8 p.m.. Expect the show to reward pop stars like Maroon 5 for having songs that are popular. It’s like watching pop radio give out glass trophies, pretty much. Though the best category is probably best Alternative Rock Music, which features the Black Keys squaring off against Foo Fighters and, you guessed it, Mumford & Sons. For more nominations, head to Spin.
