Megan Thee Stallion, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd will win the most American Music Awards, say our predictions

Hundreds of Gold Derby users have predicted the American Music Awards that will air on Sunday, November 22, and according to their combined forecasts, Megan Thee Stallion, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd will be the most awarded artists of the night. Do you agree? Scroll down to see our predicted winners listed by artist.

Swift only has four nominations at these kudos — half as many as nominations leaders The Weeknd and Roddy Ricch — but winners are decided by fans voting online, so all that matters is the passion of your fan base, and by that metric, Swift has few equals. So it’s not too surprising that we’re betting on her to sweep all of her categories: Artist of the Year, Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist, Favorite Pop/Rock Album (“Folklore“) and Favorite Music Video (“Cardigan“).

If we’re right, Swift will extend two of her AMA records. She’s already the most awarded artist in history with 29 trophies, and she has also won Artist of the Year more than anyone else (five times and counting). Not bad for a singer-songwriter who only turned 30 less than a year ago.

But we also think The Weeknd will win four times including Favorite Pop/Rock Song (“Blinding Lights”) and a sweep of the soul/R&B field. Megan The Stallion looks like she’ll be similarly dominant with a couple of victories for herself as an artist (Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Female Artist and New Artist of the Year) and a couple more for her duet with Cardi B, “WAP” (Collaboration of the Year and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Song).

Cardi B’s not the only artist we’re predicting to prevail twice. We also think Bad Bunny, Justin Bieber, BTS, Luke Combs, Dan and Shay, and the aforementioned Ricch will double up. Do you agree?
