    The nominees are based on chart performance during the year. It’s common knowledge.

    Yeah and Rihanna charted at an astounding…36?

    Rihanna had Lemon this year as well as the residual success of Loyalty, Wild Thoughts, and Anti. They literally just use stats to base their nominations off of so take it up with Billboard.

    There wasn’t anything left off Loyalty or Wild Thoughts this eligibility period. She had Lemon, which flopped, and Anti, which is lower than H.E.R’s self titled EP right now. Hell, she’ll probably end up below SZA, Normani, and Ella Mai on the Artist 100 list. The AMAs just made a dumb choice.

    Keep burning. Rihanna will take the award and she deserves.

    Rihanna is nominated alongside SZA and Ella Mai. Normani probably isn’t considered an R&B artist because she’s only released one song and it’s a pop song that hasn’t charted on any of Billboard’s R&B charts.

    Lmao why do y’all asume I don’t like Rihanna? I have stanned for her many times on GD, I just don’t think she deserved a nomination on a year were she basically released 1 new song that kinda mattered.

    I really wished that Camila Cabello was nominated for Artist of the Year. I don’t want to see Swift win again. Anybody but her. No disrespect to her but we are tired of the same winner in the same category.

    Well but she actually had a good year, album wise, single wise, and tour wise so …

     

    The last time she lost AoTY was against One Direction, and we know how big Directioners are

    Thunder, Believer, and Whatever It Takes do really well on chart and radio, Evolve is also selling well. Since this awards works on how certain artist performs based on various factors with actual data, i think those 5 nominees on AoTY deserves their nomination.

    Yeah I don’t think Camila is anywhere near those stats that the AoTY nominees have but I think she did deserved a Pop/Rock album nomination instead of Drake.

    I do agree with that, but unfortunately Drake songs do really well on pop chart and pop radio hence the nomination

    I really see most of these awards being very predictable. Especially the main awards. Just look at Twitter “Taylor Swift” is garnering way more voting tweets then all of her nominees combined in Artist of the Year, Tour of the Year, and even Pop/Rock Album of the Year (which she said Drake is likely to win jokingly on Instagram.) Camila Cabello and Taylor Swift are looking to sweep at the show. I see Taylor and Camila having competition in the Best Female Artist Pop/Rock category. But I think that Taylor will win with her strong fanbase and Taylor Nation not letting Swifties not vote. Cardi B is also really looking to snatch some awards in the Hip Hop categories. Her fandom may not match up to the likes of Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello, or BTS but it is big and she is looking to guarantee herself a few awards on October 9th. Some big upsets may be Ed Sheeran walking away with nothing which I predict he will. Drake will also most likely only win one or two of his nominated categories with a small chance of him winning nothing, and Post Malone as well not taking home much. Pop fandoms especially female pop artist fandoms are monsters. They may not be the one on the tippy top of the charts but they are the ones that are riding or dying with their faves unlike most Drake’s and Post Malone’s listeners that just aren’t as hardcore. Expect Whitney Houston’s record for the most AMA’s wins for a female to be torn down by Taylor Swift who will only need to win 3/4 of her nominations to surpass her amount of wins at 21. This will for sure be an upset for some but it is still positive that females are still winning these awards at record setting paces. Expect close races in the Hip Hop/Country categories but the rest seem predictable to me.

    TOP WINNERS

    Taylor Swift 4 WINS

    Camila Cabello 4 WINS

    Cardi B 3 WINS

    Young Thug 3 WINS

    Thomas Rhett 2 WINS

    Post Malone 2 WINS

    Very good predictions! Similar to mine. I think that Taylor easily sweeps 3/4 of her awards with Camila potentially take pop/rock female.

    It’s really a mess that Rihanna will win Favorite Female R&B/Soul Artist when she did next to nothing this year. This rotating between Rihanna and Beyoncé at these award shows is getting tiresome for people who enjoy R&B as a whole.
