Ireland's adopted musical minstrel, Ed Sheeran, has landed himself five nominations at this year's upcoming AMAs. He's up against bessie mate Taylor Swift for Artist of The Year; they're also pitted together in the Best Pop/Rock Album category and Best Adult Contemporary. In addition to this, he's up for Song Of The Year (for Thinking Out Loud - although he faces fierce competition from the likes of Uptown Funk, I Can't Feel My Face, and - yes Taylor Swift's - Blank Space) and Favorite Male Artist: Pop/Rock.
Swift has six nominations in total, while Nicki Minaj has four (don't mention the war) alongside Sam Smith. Nary a mention of Hozier, which is a bit bizarre. We love Hozier, we do.
Jennifer Lopez will host the ceremony, which will be televised by ABC, live from Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater on Nov. 22nd.
There's a smattering of the main nomination categories below.
