    Where the f*** is sza

  2. pat October 12, 2017

    The guys really owned the year. That r and b female category is so late tho. The same names all of the time…. Where is SZA?

  3. TeaOnly October 12, 2017

    Kehlani??? Sza deserved!

  4. NT October 12, 2017

    Beyonce should not be in that category with Kehlani, SZA definitely deserves to be in the category and maybe some other R&B girl like HER. Rihanna makes a little bit of sense give Wild Thoughts, but they could’ve gotten a different 2 females.

  5. ThatMessJuice.Flop October 12, 2017

    Rihanna Beyonce chainsmokers are so last year…yawn

  6. 👧 + ✈ = 💀 October 12, 2017

    Ugh Rihanna ain’t rnb

    • ??? October 12, 2017

      lol neither is bugyonce lol

  7. Brandon James October 12, 2017

    Rea Srummerd is not a NEW artist PERIOD!!! That nomination should’ve went to Sza or Cardi B

  8. Yonce October 12, 2017

    Why are Beyonce, Rihanna & Khelani nominated and why aren’t SZA & Cardi B. nominated for anything?

  9. SMH October 12, 2017

    Typical. Once again, Rihanna scores more nominations but tgj spotlights beyonce in the headline. The ass kissing & over hype of that woman is not a game here.

    • tyana jones October 12, 2017

      rihanna been in jail cuz she the one kicking slap gragged chris nuts.

      • SMH October 12, 2017

        That didn’t even make sense, so just shut up.

      • Caleb October 12, 2017

        Lies, lies and more lies. How long are Chris brown fans going to make excuses for what he did to her and Karrechu Tran after her?

  10. Jason October 12, 2017

    How is SZA not nominated for best new artist?!? This show is annoying! If it’s about sales, she has a platinum single, and a Gold album. I’m confused..

  11. DanYiel Iman October 12, 2017

    Let’s go Beyoncé & Bruno Mars!!

    • ??? October 12, 2017

      lol who? I know bruno but whats that other thing? lol

      • Caleb October 12, 2017

        Someone who sells more albums than everyone else on the nominees list.

  12. Caleb October 12, 2017

    2017 Has been one of the worst music years in recent memory. Other than Kendrick nothing’s been spectacular.

  13. Dingell jones October 12, 2017

    Beyonce and Rihanna rule this industry when it comes to awards, for th females.. Rihanna got a mom for pop rock and rb artist

  14. Justme October 12, 2017

    Beyonce sold 200,000 albums this year so why wouldn’t she be nominated.. no other rnb girl has sold that much

  15. Coolio October 12, 2017

    They only nominated bey bcuz they want the beyhive to watch lol
    And rihanna ass is smokin a blunt shes like yall better wait til next year….

  16. mr.m October 12, 2017

    The AMAs got to be the worst awards show ever!
    the nominations are always so random, so delusional
    AND boring asf ……

  17. #TeamTinashe Stan (DaniLeigh “Summer With Friends” Is Out 🔥🔥🔥) October 12, 2017

    Why is Beyonce & Rihanna nominated for anything you ask? Because of ratings!

    Award shows are trash they only added them to make people think that they’re going to show up to the show and as well for social media buzz because Kehlani for sure ain’t winning it. They’re going to give Beyonce the award to make her fans tweet about the show.
