Taylor Swift and Jazmine Sullivan among 2021 American Music Awards nominees



Taylor Swift will look to consolidate her record-breaking American Music Award winning streak next month, after the singer-songwriter received three nominations Thursday for the 2021 awards.

Among Swift’s nominations is Artist of the Year, a category she has won three times in a row. The Berks County native has received the all-time honor six times since 2009.

Ariana Grande, BTS, Drake, Olivia Rodrigo and The Weeknd are also nominated for the biggest category of the awards show.

Swift, 31, was also honored for her favorite pop artist and her favorite pop album for her record “Evermore”. The musician released the album, the ninth of her career, last December. It debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart.

Swift, who broke Michael Jackson’s record for most AMA wins in 2019, added three more trophies to his collection last year, giving the artist a total of 32.

Jazmine Sullivan of Philly received three AMA nominations for this year’s awards, including for Favorite Female R&B Artist, along with Doja Cat, HER, SZA and Jhené Aiko.

Sullivan’s fourth record, “Heaux Tales” was nominated for Favorite R&B Album and his track, “Pick Up Your Feelings”, is one of the finalists for Favorite R&B Song. The record won Album of the Year at the 2021 BET Awards in June.

When the 14-track EP released in January, it debuted at No. 4 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart. The album, which was primarily recorded at Sullivan’s home in Philadelphia, became her highest-end album and the second top 10 album of the musician’s career following her debut album “Fearless” in 2008.

A graduate of Philadelphia High School for Creative and Performing Arts, Sullivan sang the national anthem at Super Bowl LV in February with country singer Eric Church.

Pop star and first-time nominee Olivia Rodrigo has the most nominations this year with seven. Nominees were determined based on a number of parameters including streaming, album and song sales, and radio broadcast over the past year.

The winners will be determined by a fan vote taken on the TikTok website and Billboard. Voting is now open and fans can vote once per category every day.

The 2021 American Music Awards will air at 8 p.m. Sunday, November 21, on ABC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The awards show will be available to stream the next day on Hulu.
