Home Music Adele, Lady Gaga Head Up American Music Awards Nominees

The amusing and meaningless American Music Awards have announced their nominees. Lady Gaga and Adele take up most of it, and they’ve thrown Justin Bieber in for good measure. Here’s the list. Again, this is just a fun night. It has nothing to do with anything. The Grammy Awards are in February.Maybe Foster the People will win Best New Artist. As you know, the winners are well informed prior to the show. My guess is they’ll give Gaga all of it. She’ll show up, get good ratings, and make for a fun night. Adele will get Adult artist or something.
