Nicki Minaj, Drake & Tyga All Nominated At The 2012 American Music Awards

The nominations for this year’s American Music Awards have just been announced at the J.W. Marriott hotel in Los Angeles, California. Nicki Minaj leads the pack with 4 nominations, Drake comes just behind her with 3 nominations, and Tyga picks up 1 nomination. The amazing thing is in the “Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist” category, which includes just 3 artists, and they are the 3 Young Money artists I just named.

The 40th Annual American Music Awards will take place at the Nokia Theater in L.A. on November 18th at 8PM EST and broadcast live on ABC. Christina Aguilera has been confirmed as a performer on the awards show, but there is no word yet on if anyone from YMCMB will be attending. You can view the full list of nominees after the jump below.
