And none for Justin Bieber, bye :(


You'd think that, after all that went down at this year's MTV VMAs, the entire world would come to a mutual agreement never to host an award ceremony ever again. But it seems not even a foam finger and flesh-coloured latex can put a stop to this age-old tradition, 'cause the nomination's for the 2013 American Music Awards have just been announced...and *loads* of our faves are up for gongs.

Yup - the likes of One Direction (quite good), Ariana Grande (decent), Taylor Swift (above average) and more are all nominated this year. In fact our only complaint is that poor old Justin Bieber doesn't even get a bloody look in. Agh.

FANS OF LISTS AND SCROLLING DOWN PAGES FOREVER REJOICE. Here's a massive list of all this year's nominees that you may or may not be bothered to read. We'd recommend it, just so you know what's going on and stuff, but we won't hold it against you if you'd rather just ogle the new 1D album artwork for a bit instead.
