Taylor Swift and Michael Jackson Lead AMAs

Taylor Swift is pretty unstoppable these days. The 19-year old country starlet nabbed five American Music Award nominations this morning, putting her right at the top of the pack alongside the late Michael Jackson.

The nominations were read off this morning by Paula Abdul, Adam Lambert, and Snoop Dogg. Taylor’s noms include female country music artist, favorite female pop artist and artist of the year. And right behind her and MJ is the controversial Eminem, who has four nominations.

Beyoncé, the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, Kings of Leon and T.I. each received three. For the first time in the show's 37-year history, fans will be able to vote on the final four nominees of the T-Mobile Breakthrough Artist Award at ABC.com. Kings of Leon, Lady Gaga, Gloriana, the Zac Brown Band, Keri Hilson, and Jermiah are all in the running.

The AMAs will air live from Los Angeles's Nokia Theatre on Sunday, November 22nd at 8PM.
