The 2015 edition of the American Music Awards will be telecast on ABC tonight (Sunday, Nov. 22) beginning at 5 p.m. PT/ 8 p.m ET. The ceremony is to take place in Los Angeles, California, at the Microsoft Theater and will be hosted by Jennifer Lopez.

AMA cheat sheet: You should predict Taylor Swift, One Direction, Nicki Minaj

Tonight’s show is scheduled to include performances by Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Gwen Stefani, The Weeknd, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Coldplay, One Direction, Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato, Walk the Moon, Selena Gomez, 5 Seconds of Summer and Carrie Underwood.

But who will come out on top when the winners are announced?

Taylor Swift is expected to dominate the American Music Awards on Sunday night according to the combined predictions of our EditorsTop 24 Users (at the last AMAs we predicted) and All Users. She’s nominated six times and is forecast to make a clean sweep of her categories.

Swift will win Artist of the Year for the fourth time (she’s never lost when nominated), as well as Song of the Year (“Blank Space“), Collaboration of the Year (“Bad Blood,” with Kendrick Lamar), Adult Contemporary Artist, Pop/Rock Female Artist and Pop/Rock Album (“1989“). It’s lucky for the rest of this year’s field that she didn’t decide to record an R&B or rap album too, or no other artists would stand a chance.

Despite Swift’s sweep, The Weeknd will still manage three victories of his own out of his five nominations. He won’t take Artist of the Year – he was among the top 10 nominees but didn’t make the cut when the AMAs narrowed that down to the final five – but we’re expecting him to take every category where he doesn’t have to face Swift: New Artist of the Year, Soul/R&B Male Artist and Soul/R&B Album (“Beauty Behind the Madness“).

Only two others will win multiple prizes over the weekend. Nicki Minaj gets best odds in the races for Rap/Hip-Hop Artist and Rap/Hip-Hop Album (“The Pinkprint“), while Florida Georgia Line will be awarded prizes for Country Duo or Group and Country Album (“Anything Goes“).
