The 2013 American Music Awards nominees have been announced, with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake grabbing the most nominations of the bunch!

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis lead the pack this year with a total of six nominations. They are followed by Swift and JT with five nominations each.

Rihanna and Robin Thicke nabbed four nominations each. Additionally, Bruno Mars grabbed three noms.

Needless to say, the pop music competition is stiff.

The AMAs will take place at the NOKIA Theatre at the L.A. Live complex on Sunday, Nov. 24. The broadcast airs at 8PM and runs through 11PM ET on ABC.

Miley Cyrus and Imagine Dragons have been confirmed to perform, with other performers to be announced in the coming weeks. The show airs the Sunday before Thanksgiving, so it should be tons of fun.

The best thing about the AMAs is that they are voted on by the fans. Let your voice be heard, PopCrushers.

For the seventh year in a row, winners will be determined by online voting. Starting today (Oct. 10), fans can vote at the Coca-Cola AMA voting site. But there is a twist. This year, fans can vote for their faves via Twitter, too.

The key categories and nominations are below.
