Iggy Azalea wraps up her stellar year, as she leads the 2014 American Music Awards nominations with six nods – including Artist of the Year, Single of the Year for her Charli XCX-assisted hit “Fancy,” Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist, and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album. She has some tough competition in that last category, going head to head with Drake and Eminem.
Trailing behind the rapper is Katy Perry, Pharrell and John Legend with five nominations. “Yellow Flicker Beat” singer Lorde snagged herself four nominations. It has also been announced that Charli XCX will grace the stage, performing at the show for the first time. The ceremony determined by fan votes, which will reveal how much these artists truly connected with their audiences over the past year.
