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.
