Award season is in the air and next month a throng of music’s finest will fill up the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles for the 2015 American Music Awards.

The nominations for the award ceremony were announced today (October 13), revealing superstar Taylor Swift as the most nominated artist with six awards, including artist of the year. Not far behind the 1989 powerhouse are The Weeknd and Ed Sheeran, who both have five nods each. Nicki Minaj, Sam Smith, and Ms. “All About That Bass” Meghan Trainor scored four nominations.

Rap’s 2015 golden child Fetty Wap will also be part of the mix, as the “My Way” crooner snagged two nominations, including New Artist of the Year and Favorite Artist. The latter category finds Wap competing with Drake and Nicki Minaj. Drake, meanwhile, is up for Favorite Artist and Favorite Album with If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, the year's highest selling album.
