  2. How the fuck is Rae Sremmurd nominated for New Artist?

  3. The almost complete absence of women in the nominations is an embarrassment.
     
  4. Isn't lady Gaga performing?
     
  5. No Camiya??
     
  6. The AMAs are notoriously behind the times. She'll be all over it next year.

  13. American Music Awards lemme hear y'all make some noise!
     
  14. That might be the most offensive list I've ever seen. Even the categories designed 'for Female Artists' feel like they just picked a couple big names without actually...checking if they actually released any music this year.

    What a waste of everyone's time.
     
  15. How is this in less than 2 weeks and Selena & Demi are basically the only advertised performers?
     
  16. Not me getting Rae Srummund and Rae Morris mixed up in my head.

  18. To be fair, Rihanna has the most successful female album of 2017 and Alessia Cara is the most successful woman on radio this year.
     
  19. Is Lorde not eligible?
     
  20. Kelly is on every show imaginable doing promo, so she's not a major draw, and XTina is doing a tribute. Honestly, seeing a KPop group do such a high profile gig in the US is the most exciting thing they've announced thus far. Poor this broadcast.
