The Weeknd was second with six nominations, and Bad Bunny, Giveon, and Doja Cat, each earned five nominations.

The Awards ceremony will be hosted by Cardi B, who has won 5 “AMAs” and performed on the show in 2018. “We are immensely excited to have the dynamic Cardi B bring her infectious energy to the American Music Awards as a first-time host. She will excite the viewers, push the limits and deliver a show that will be remembered forever!” said executive producer Jesse Collins.
