For 32 years, legendary performer Michael Jackson has held the record for most noms at the AMAs (with 11), but the Canadian rapper is topping off a killer year with 13 nods!

But what's strange about this is... he's never ACTUALLY won an American Music Award before!

Beyonce, Rihanna and Justin Bieber have also received several nominations for this year's awards, which takes place on 20th November.

After being shunned by the GRAMMYs for "not being new", former One Direction heartthrob Zayn has been nominated for New Artist Of The Year.
