It’s all about Nicki Minaj and Rihanna for the 2012 American Music Awards! The nominations have been announced and there’s love for Drake, Justin Bieber, Maroon 5 and – our personal favorites – One Direction!

Christina Aguilera announced the nominees for each category Tuesday morning and even revealed that she’ll be taking the stage for the big show! As far as other performers, we’ll have to sit and wait patiently for that one. But I’m going to go ahead and guess that Justin will most definitely be on stage that night! Take a look at the full list of nom’s below!
