Justin Bieber may not be up for as many American Music Awards as last year. (Then again, he hasn’t had a new album in about a year either.) But somehow, the Biebs still made his way onto the list of AMA nominees. What a pleasant surprise! Unsurprisingly, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Katy Perry and more fab singers appear on the list more than once. But who took home the most nods? Peep the entire list below, plus find out who’s hosting and performing!
