The American Music Awards never fails to bring out our favorite celebs looking their best and based on this year's nomination list, the 2016 ceremony is going to be one star-studded affair!

The award show just announced their list of nominees, including a record-breaking rapper!

Back in 1984, Michael Jackson earned a whopping 11 nominations, but this year Drake ended up edging the Thriller singer out by earning 13!
