Nominations for the 2020 American Music Awards came out on Monday morning (Oct. 26), and Billboard wants to know who you’d love to see take the stage as a performer!
The Weeknd and Roddy Ricch lead this year’s list with eight nods each, and both are vying for artist of the year. But Taylor Swift, who has won more AMAs than any other artist with 29 total, could win four more this year. She could go down in history as the first five-time winner for favorite female artist pop/rock in the award show’s history.
And for the first time since 2005, the favorite rap/hip-hop artist category is being divided by male and female artists. Megan Thee Stallion, who has the second-most nominations with five, could perform a medley of her No. 1 hits from this year, “Savage,” featuring Beyoncé, and “WAP” with Cardi B, which are both competing for collaboration of the year. DaBaby could bring another one of his show-stopping performances with “Rockstar” with Ricch, which is up for collaboration of the year and favorite song rap/hip-hop.
The 2020 American Music Awards is produced by dick clark productions, which is owned by MRC Entertainment, the parent company of Billboard. The 2020 AMAs will air on ABC at 8 p.m. ET on Nov. 22 from Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater.
A study cited in an article from Harvard University suggests your diet could have a significant impact on your memory as you age. Scientists at Brigham and Women's Hospital published a study within the "Annals of Neurology" that suggested women who ate high levels of saturated fat in foods like red meat and butter didn't perform as well on memory tests than women who regularly consumed less saturated fat. Researchers haven't yet discovered the connection between saturated fat and memory, but they hypothesize it could have something to do with a person's genes. Scientists and doctors have long recommended that patients work to control their cholesterol levels as they age to protect the memory during the aging process.
