Christina Aguilera announced the American Music Awards nominations this morning in Los Angeles, Ca and no surprise here, R&B/Pop princesses Nicki Minaj and Rihanna are leading the pack with four nominations a piece.

Nicki is up for Favorite Female Artist –Pop/Rock, Favorite Artist – Rap/Hip Hop, Favorite Album – Pop/rock and Favorite Album – Rap/Hip Hop for “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.”

Nicki is sweeping multi-categories, getting nominations in the pop/rock AND the Rap/Hip Hop categories.

Rihanna is up for Artist of the Year, Favorite Female Artist - Pop/Rock, Favorite Female Artist - Soul/R&B and Favorite Album - Soul/R&B for “Talk That Talk.”

And of course, because Electronic Dance Music is taking over radio play, they’ve introduced a new category: Favorite Artist – Electronic Dance Music (EDM), for which David Guetta, Calvin Harris and Skrillex are nominated.

The ceremony will take place at Los Angeles’ Nokia theater on November 18, 2012 and so far Christina Aguilera is the first performer announced to sing at the awards show.
