American Music Awards Nominate Grammy Left Overs, B Listers

Share

The nominees for the American Music Awards are really awful, as usual. They’re also a collection of songs and artists who either aren’t eligible for the Grammys, or know in advance they won’t be asked to perform on the Grammy broadcast in February 2015. The AMAs are taking advantage of Pharrell’s “Happy” and John Legend’s “All of Me” having been released during the 2013 Grammy year. In fact, except for Sam Smith, most of this stuff feels like it happened a long time ago. This is all done via publicists, record companies and managers agreeing to be involved, or not. The show is on ABC November 23rd, hashtage #zzzz.
