AMAs Nominations Announced: Iggy Azalea Leads The Way With Six Nods

Nominations for the American Music Awards 2014 have been revealed. The occasion is a much awaited annual event by any great singers, composers, songwriter and other music related people. Those in the nominations were announced a few days back, with Iggy Azalea getting mentions in six leading categories.

The Australian rapper is one of the nominees for ‘the prestigious artist of the year’ gong while she also is a strong aspirant for being prized ‘the new artist of the year’ award.

Another category where 24yrs superstar is running is 'single of the year'. Iggy gets this nomination for her song Fancy that was recorded in collaboration with Charli XCX.

Besides Iggy who is leading the way with most categories in the AMAs nominations, John Legend, Katy Perry and Pharrell William are high-flying with five prizes.  Relative newcomer Lorde is up for four whereas American singer and actress Beyonce Knowles is vying for three nods.

Iggy is going to battle those nominations for being honored with 'artist of the year ‘award. She fascinatingly finds Luke Bryan, Eminem, Imagine Dragons and One Direction rounding up the grouping.

Captivatingly 'the single of the year' trophy is worthy of the best and sees some of the same artists competing to be the name. The gong also features John Legend for ' All of Me', Pharrell Williams for 'happy'. Katty Perry also joins the group for 'Dark House' scoring her a nod for the same.  Pharrell Williams is striving for Happy while Katy Perry's track Dark Horse is also nominated in the category.

Featuring 5 Seconds of Summer, Bastille, Sam Smith or Meghan Trainor and Iggy, 'The new artist ' award will be named to the worthy star for their smash blockbuster.

Despite Iggy didn't face very good press last year and was lashed out for her rapping capabilities, she receives a nod for 'the best rap artist' award. Drake and Eminem are also running in the same category with the same two artists

Another category where the Australian singer alongside Katy Perry and Lorde will be appearing as a nominee is the women's version of ' best male pop/rock artist' that sees John Legend, Sam Smith and Pharrell Williams battling each other.

Lorde gonna be happy for her album 'Pure Heroine' scoring her 'the best pop/rock record’ nominations together with Midnight Memories by One Direction and LP Prism, the record by American singer, songwriter, and actress Katy Perry.
