Turn on the radio and you’d be hard pushed to go two songs without hearing the likes of Lady Gaga or Rihanna, and the prevalence of female artists on the music scene has been confirmed with the announcement of the American Music Award nominations and Katy Perry, Adele, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift’s sweeping of the nominee board.
Out of the five acts nominated for Artist of the Year, four are female artists with only Lil Wayne there to represent the boys. Joining him, pop divas Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Adele will go head-to-head for the award.
And that’s not the only nomination for Brit girl Adele. Doing us proud, the soulful songstress is up for four awards in total, Favourite Female Artist and Best Album included. Fingers crossed!
