The 2013 American Music Awards are right around the corner and there’s a lot more to get excited about than just Miley Cyrus twerking in the shadows, waiting in the wings to sabotage another awards show stage.

Another act already confirmed to perform is rock group Imagine Dragons, and while there are many artists yet to be announced as performers, the AMAs nominees list is a pretty fair indication of whom to expect.

Also it would seem like a disservice to exclude some of the biggest songs of the summer, so we’re guessing a “Blurred Lines” performance by Robin Thicke and Pharrell is in the works.

Kelly Clarkson and will.i.am did the honors of revealing the full list this morning in New York City. Here are the highlights:

–      Macklemore & Ryan Lewis lead with six nominations

–      Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake both follow with five

–      Rihanna and Robin Thicke take four each

–      Bruno Mars earned three nods
