Eminem Leads Amas

Eminem leads the American Music Awards with nominations in five categories.

The 'Not Afraid' rapper picked up nominations in the night's biggest categories, including Favourite Male Artist and Favourite Album in the Pop or Rock categories and Artist of the Year.

Eminem's five nominations are matched only by country group Lady Antebellum, who have nominations for Favourite Band in the Pop or Rock category and in a number of country categories.

Teen sensation Justin Beiber has four nominations, while rapper B.o.B, and pop stars Katy Perry, Ke$ha and Usher all received three nominations.

Performers who have already signed up to appear at the awards include Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Usher, Pink and Bon Jovi.

British artists Sade and Taio Cruz have also picked up nominations, with Taio in the running for Breakthrough Artist and Sade having a nod in the Favorite Female Artist and favourite album in the Soul/R 'n' B categories.

Taio - who has had a number one single in the US with debut single 'Break Your Heart' - said of his nomination: "I was not expecting it at all, it was a massive surprise and it feels great to be out here and just recognised for the music I've made so far.

"We were surprised at the first single doing so well, just shocked with the second single doing as well as it's done. Now being nominated for an AMA is just as surprising."

The 2010 American Music Awards will be shown on Sunday, November 21. Winners are chosen by fans, who can vote online at ABC.com and AMAvote.com.
