The nominees for the “American Music Awards” were announced this week . . . and Loudwire.com has pointed out that NO rock acts were nominated in the pop / rock categories . . . which are lumped together for some reason. The pop / rock categories include nominees like: Justin Bieber, Post Malone, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, the Jonas Brothers, BTS, Maroon 5, Harry Styles, The Weeknd, and Dua Lipa. The “alternative rock” category got a little closer, but it’s still not exactly ROCK. Those nominees are: Billie Eilish, Tame Impala, and Twenty One Pilots.
