[Music] My American Music Awards Predictions

The American Music Awards is the last major awards show of the year, airing every November. This year’s show, airing Sunday November 22nd at 8pm on ABC, is hosted for the first time by Jennifer Lopez, replacing two-year veteran Pitbull. Like most music award shows, the AMAs is an eclectic mini-concert platform for artists to debut their new single or perform their newest material. However, there are also awards to be won, and below you will find my predictions for this year’s winners. These are purely educated guesses, particularly the country categories as country is not my forte. I’ll update this post following the show to see how many categories I guessed correctly. Let me know if you (dis)agree with me…
