The 2022 American Music Awards will air live on ABC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, November 20, at 8 p.m. ET. Cardi B hosted last year’s award show; the host of this year’s 50th edition has yet to be announced. The American Music Awards winners are determined entirely by fans. Nominees are based on key fan interactions reflected on the Billboard charts including streaming, album sales, song sales and radio airplay.
Becky G kicked off the nominations by announcing the nominees for New Artist of the Year with Dove Cameron, Latto, GAYLE, Maneskin and Steve Lacy. Everyone but Steve Lacy was available to welcome the announcement. Past winners of New Artist of the Year have been Doja Cat, Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo.
