About.com just came out with their predictions for this year's American Music Awards and guess what? Of the 4 categories that Justin is nominated in, they have chosen him to win 3: Breakout Artist of the Year, Male Artist of the Year, and the huge prize of Artist of the Year (losing only Album of the Year to Eminem's "Recovery".)
The American Music Awards are the only major pop music awards voted on by music fans. The awards will be telecast live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles Sunday, November 21, 2010 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Television.
My predictions are simply that...predictions. It will be up to the music fans to choose the actual winners. My predicted winner in each category is in bold type. I have included comments on each nominee. I am making predictions in the Pop/Rock and General categories.
Justin Bieber - This is the year Justin Bieber truly spread his wings as a teen star with the release of the album My World 2.0. The American Music Awards is exactly the venue in which his phenomenal fan support will bring home a trophy.
Eminem - 2010 was clearly a big year for Eminem. Thus far Recovery is the biggest selling album of the year and "Love the Way You Lie" is a song for the ages.
Usher - With a little assist from will.i.am, "OMG" brought Usher to the top of the pop singles chart in high style this year. The club-oriented R&B of "DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love" has kept him on pop radio well into the fall.
