The American Music Awards are just a month away, and the nominations have been announced, with stars such as Queen, Post Malone, Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift among the hotly-tipped nominees.

Post Malone leads the list with seven nods, with Ariana Grande and first-time nominee Billie Eilish following with six each. Eilish is up for new artist of the year, competing against Luke Combs, Lil Nas X, Lizzo and Ella Mai. Malone and Grande are both nominated for one of the night’s biggest honors, artist of the year, alongside Halsey, Drake and Taylor Swift. Swift currently holds the most wins (four) in the category and might go on to surpass Michael Jackson’s record for most AMAs of all time if she wins two of the five categories she’s nominated in.

Elton John, meanwhile, received a nod for the Tour of the Year trophy for his ongoing Farewell Yellow Brick Road trek. The pop-rock legend will compete for the prize against his pal Ed Sheeran, BTS, Ariana Grande and Pink.

Queen are vying for the Favourite Soundtrack honour for the Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack. The other nominees in the category are the A Star Is Born soundtrack by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper and the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack.

Voting is now open for all American Music Awards categories at the event’s official website, or else via Google.com and using the search terms “AMAs Vote” or “[Nominee Name] AMAs Vote.” Voting will close on 20 November.
