    I am going to watch some of it to see kelly and daughtry but most of the performers are a hotmess. Lol

    But the good news is swsrn is no longer performing just attending.
    She likely swept all her categories as no one can beat her fanbase anymore at these shows.

    Sad as adele deserves artist of the year snd i think everyone knows that. But since it is fanvoted and swsrn is attending but adele and gaga are not attending-- it is obvious taylor won.

    They tell the winners in advance for this i think.

    Wonder why SWSRN isn't performing anymore????? Gee, she's depriving everyone of her fine vocal prowess????? Seems so unlike her to not take advantage of a national audience!!!

    Adele's off sick, that may be the reason why she isn't attending/performing. I'm glad, let her do whatever it takes to get that voice back!

    I'll probably watch despite it all. I really don't like the AMAs very much, though. Don't get me wrong, I like pop music, a LOT! The AMAs just don't do it for me for some reason.

    Do we have a list of performers yet?

    I probably wont' be watching, but I may check out a few performances on Youtube. For the most part, the PCA/AMA's don't really interest me. Is it just me, or do these nominations become a little stranger every year? Sara Evans over Carrie, Blake over Keith, ZBB & TBP over Rascal Flatts? It just seems odd all these artists have dominated their respective categories over the years, despite the fact that their overall popularity has stayed steady, or increased a little bit. How can artists who have never gotten a single nomination at a fan-voted awards show suddenly triumph the mainstays out of nowhere? It just seems so strange.

    This is a mainstream award show, so I understand the inclusion of Blake and TBP. They were very visible to the audience of this show, Blake because of The Voice and TBP because of their song being sent to other formats. I don't understand the Sara thing at all...do most mainstream music fans even know who she is?
    The other nominations in the country category made sense for me simply because of their visibility to the general public. Keith and Rascal Flatts weren't terribly visible to a more mainstream audience, and Carrie was likely left off the list due to having no new material this year. I'm sure she'll be back on the list next year .

    I wonder how many years in a row Taylor will sweep this award show? It is a given that she won the country categories, but I bet she won Artist of the year again too--- which is grossly unfair since Adele OWNED 2011. Or Lady Gaga, but not SWSRN who did not have any crossover hits this year, etc.

    Adele outsold her all over the world, and buried her in radio success. It makes no sense.

    I truly think Taylor will sweep the fan voted award shows for the next 10 years straight. It is very very sad what is happening, as you cannot beat those rabid tween voters.,

    I agree with you that the inclusion of Sara Evans is odd as Carrie still beat her in overall download sales and album sales if you look at it all together, etc.

    Do you think the label submits the names they want considered, and they chose not to submit Carrie because of her quiet year? Sara and Carrie are both on the same label with Miranda. Hmmm.

    If so, I really really wonder about this Overton guy.

    Or----- do the AMAS just randomly pick people?

    You can't blame this one on the label, Tee. The AMAs select nominees on the basis on airplay, sales, social network activity, and video views. Their eligibility period is from December 1 (of previous year) to September 1 (of current year).
    Furthermore, even if the label were the ones to submit for these awards, it would only make sense they would nominate the artists that were most active that year. Not an artist that didn't release any new music. It's just good business sense.
