Taylor Swift performing at the Target Center in Minneapolis on 10/11/09
Taylor Swift has had quite the year already.
A consecutive #1 album, consecutive #1 songs from that album, and a sold out tour to boot!
Today the nominees were announced for the American Music Awards, one of the less respected award shows of the season. She can also rest easy knowing that Kanye West was shut out of the nominations, and has not been announced as a performer.
Swift is nominated in the following 6 categories:
- Artist of the Year
- Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist
- Favorite Pop/Rock Album
- Favorite Country Female Artist
- Favorite Country Album
- Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist
For all of you who weren't at the last stop of the her Fearless tour in Minneapolis on Sunday night (this includes me-had to work), you can check out the videos here of the pranks involving Taylor, Kellie Pickler and Gloriana.
