Michael Jackson earns American Music Awards nod

AP | DAVID BAUDER | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

NEW YORK — Michael Jackson has a chance to win artist of the year posthumously at the American Music Awards.

The pop superstar, who died on June 25, was among a diverse group of artists nominated Tuesday for the top honor. Country star Taylor Swift, rapper Eminem, breakthrough rockers Kings of Leon and flamboyant pop star Lady Gaga were the other nominees.

Swift topped all artists with six nominations. She drew inadvertent attention at the MTV Video Music Awards last month when rapper Kanye West interrupted her acceptance speech to say Beyonce deserved the award instead.

Jackson followed Swift with five nominations and Eminem received four.

Winners are determined by an online vote of fans and will be announced at a Los Angeles ceremony televised by ABC on Nov. 22. The nominees were selected through a measurement combining sales and radio airplay.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Taylor Swift says she is "absolutely walking on a cloud" over her six nominations for the American Music Awards.

"I've never been nominated six times for any award show," the country star said Tuesday before a benefit concert in Nashville. "This is just such a wonderful day for me."

Her tally, announced on Oct. 13, even beat late superstar Michael Jackson, with five nods and rapper Eminem, with four.

"It's the 13th today, and 13 is my lucky number, and that's when I found out about the AMAs. It's like, I swear, good things happen on the 13th for me, and I can't believe all those nominations."

The 19-year-old is up for the AMA's big award, artist of the year, alongside Jackson, Lady Gaga, Eminem, and rock band Kings of Leon.
