Ok Ok Ok, so we fooled you just a bit. The nominees for the American Music Awards will be announced very soon. Music superstars Jason Derulo and Charli XCX will appear live on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Monday, October 13 to announce nominees for five categories for the 2014 American Music Awards. The full list of nominees will be made available at TheAMAs.com at 9:00 am ET following their appearance on GMA. The 2014 American Music Awards will broadcast live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A.

Five years since making his debut in pop music, Jason Derulo has sold more than 45 million records worldwide and amassed more than 1.3 billion views on his YouTube channel. His last song, “Wiggle” featuring Snoop Dogg is his eighth song to reach the Top 10 on the Top 40 format and his ninth platinum-selling single. The video for the track has amassed over 300 million views. Derulo’s ubiquitous hit “Talk Dirty” featuring 2 Chainz is his most successful track to date, having sold more than six million copies worldwide. The Miami-native’s career started when he was 16 years old and began writing songs for artists including Lil Wayne, Pitbull, Diddy, Sean Kingston, Cassie and Danity Kane. Derulo’s current hit “Trumpets” will be the fifth single from his most recent album, Talk Dirty, to go platinum- an accomplishment reached by only eight other artists since 2007 including Taylor Swift, Beyoncé and Bruno Mars.
London-based singer and songwriter Charli XCX is quickly proving an unqualified phenomenon with her edgy, yet addictive approach. Since her first critically-acclaimed track, “Nuclear Seasons” in 2011, the 22 year-old, Charlotte Aitchison, co-wrote the #1 smash single, “Fancy” with Iggy Azalea, and penned last year’s double platinum summer it-song, “I Love It” recorded by Icona Pop, which she is featured on. Most recently, Charli XCX released the platinum selling “Boom Clap” single from the ‘The Fault in Our Stars: Music From the Motion Picture’ soundtrack, landing the #1 spot on Top 40 radio along, with a brand new song, “Break The Rules” from her forthcoming sophomore studio album, “Sucker” arriving December 16th via Neon Gold/Atlantic Records.
