    Something’s very wrong if Justin Beiber beats Eminem for Best Male Artist.

    I think Em will win every category he’s in. He should because I believe bases the winner purely on record sales, and Recovery has put up amazing numbers. But the awards shows tend to be rather screwy so you never know.

    On a different note… I think Lady Antebellum should win Best Group and B.o.B should win Best Breakthrough Artist. Their albums are both amazing.

    Chris Brown and Rihanna for the R&B/Soul Artist wins. Their fanbases go harder than any of the other nominees, so they’ve got that on lock like it’s 2008. Usher will take home R&B Album. Sorry Trey… even in Brown’s most down year, he still trumps you all day, in circles, bruh!

    Gaga for pop female artist of the year, Bieber will beat out Usher and Em’s fanbase.

    Artist of the year will be Gaga.

    The end.

    The first two in the favorite R&B album award that I played on a road trip on July 29th, Sade and Usher’s albums, both got nominated! Usher’s album is great as well as Alicia Keys, but I believe the award will go to Sade–fabulous effort that’s already sold over a million copies in a few months!

    then if rihanna win, i’ll be shocked! because sade and alicia keyyyyyyys are far awayyyyyyyy more talented and respected in the music industry . they have TALENT

    and that’s all

  13. keri

    FINALLY!!!! An award show that counts. Unlike BET, MTV, who consistently nominates NICKI MINAJ, for no talent and doesnt have an album out. Thank you AMA’s for nominating the REAL DEAL!!!

    @ dee dee, no thie dick riders are the haters, such as you of Chris Brown, yall ride his dick all the damn time. And as far as his crying stans, you are wrong again, you are the only one I see crying so far, I’m sure some more will join you. Haters such as yourself bitch all the time about CB, yall eat, sleep, and shit the dude, move the hell on and do something with your own pathetic life.

    Don’t start with this crap about CB again, you haters or stans of Rihanna love to put doown the stans of his for the same thing you all do when it comes to her. CB has one of his shares of awards and has had success with albums and singles, don’t start bringing up negeative crap. And as far as Rihanna’s career being more better than his, please don’t go there, because everybody knows the circumstances surrounding that. You Rihanna stans are always on Rap Up hating on other artists, you all are truly some hypocrites, so he was nominated get over it, get over yourselves. This nonsense has gooten old and you all need to move on, it’s really pathetic and it’s stupid.
