Eminem, Justin Bieber Lead American Music Award Nominees

Em is tied with Lady Antebellum with five nominations.

The full list of nominees for the 2010 American Music Awards were announced Tuesday (October 12) in Los Angeles, and, much like he’s done for most of the year, Eminem stands head and shoulders above the rest.

Em is up for five awards at the 2010 AMAs, tied with country juggernauts Lady Antebellum for the most of any artist. Justin Bieber scored four nods, while B.o.B, Katy Perry, Ke$ha and Usher are each up for three. Lady Gaga, the Black Eyed Peas, Rihanna and Drake are also nominated in various categories.

Eminem is nominated in both the Favorite Male Artist – Pop or Rock (up against Bieber and Usher) and Hip-Hop categories and Artist of the Year (where he’ll face off against Gaga, Perry, Bieber and Ke$ha). His massively successful Recovery disc is also up for Favorite Album – Rap or Hip-Hop. Bieber’s four nods are for Favorite Male – Pop or Rock, Artist of the Year and Breakthrough Artist of the Year. My World 2.0 is also in the running for Album of the Year – Pop or Rock.

AMA nominees are selected from BigChampagne’s Ultimate Chart, which ranks the most popular artists and songs based on a weighted combination of music sales, radio and TV broadcast, Internet streaming and video viewing and “additional online metrics,” including social-media activity.

Winners will be determined by online voting, at AMAVote.com; voting is now under way in all categories.

The 38th annual AMAs will be broadcast live from the Nokia Theatre in L.A. on Sunday, November 21, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
