The Chainsmokers, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Ed Sheeran and the Weeknd each earned five nominations. Bruno Mars picked up nominations for Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist and Artist of the Year. However, the star of the evening was Justin Bieber, who bagged four trophies of the night, including "Video Of The Year". The 2017 show will broadcast live on ABC on November 19 from Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater and is produced by dick clark productions. "Hoping the coming award shows give them the credit that is due to them".

Halsey may be "Bad at Love", but she's good at standing up for what she believes in.

Mars, The Chainsmokers, Drake, Lamar and Sheeran received nominations for the artist of the year award, the top AMA prize.

The women of pop music failed to land nominations in categories such as Artist of the Year, Video of the Year and Tour of the Year. She will compete with Lady Gaga and newcomer Alessia Cara for favourite female pop/rock artist, and she will face Beyonce and Kehlani in the favourite female soul/R&B category.

Other nominees were former One Direction heartthrob Niall Horan, British singer and fellow TV contest star James Arthur, rapper Post Malone and hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd.

The nominations - which are determined via fan interactions as reflected in Billboard magazine and on - echo an entirely male-dominated 2017 in the music world.
