2022 American Music Awards Details: Nominations, Host, Date

The host for the 2022 American Music Awards has been revealed, and he likely earned the disappointment. On October 24, ABC announced that actor, musician and versatile artist Wayne Brady will host this year’s awards show. “I’m thrilled and honored to host this year’s AMAs. As a musician and music lover, it’s amazing to be part of an evening where music fans have their voices heard!” Brady said in a statement on the news. “It’s a great show, so I’m bringing everything… The humor, the music and the movements!”

Brady, who you may remember winning season 2 of “The Masked Singer” in 2019, is currently wows viewers as a contestant on season 31 of “Dancing With the Stars.” He became a favorite, often landing near the top of the leaderboard with partner Witney Carson. It’s safe to say that it will have everything one needs to succeed as an AMAs host.

On October 13, the full list of nominees was revealed, kicking off with the Best New Artist category, which was presented by Becky G on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Dove Cameron, GAYLE, Latto, Måneskin and Steve Lacy all scored nods after their successful year in music.

The rest of the nominations were announced on the American Music Awards social media, with Bad Bunny taking the lead with an impressive total of eight nods, including his first nomination for Artist of the Year. If Bad Bunny wins all eight awards, he’ll tie Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston for the most awards in a single year. Behind Beyoncé, Drake and Taylor Swift, who all scored six nods, and Adele, Harry Styles and The Weeknd, with five nominations each.

The American Music Awards will air live on Sunday, November 20 from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. See the rest of the upcoming nominations.
