There are no major curveballs this time around: The usual suspects are all here, with the addition of notable newcomers Ariana Grande, Florida Georgia Line, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who are nominated for six awards.

The only surprise, really, is that Daft Punk was only nominated for Favorite Artist, Electronic Dance Music. The French duo, which scored an inescapable hit with "Get Lucky" over the summer, is up against Avicii, Calvin Harris, and Zedd.

The American Music Awards are fan-selected, to see teen-oriented acts fare very well in their categories. Expect an ultimate showdown in the Favorite Album, Pop/Rock category, where Taylor Swift, One Direction, and Justin Timberlake are in competition. Head here to get voting!
