AMA Nominees Chosen Using Ultimate Chart Over Billboard Top 100 (For The First Time Ever…)

Capture (UPDATED) For the first time ever, the nominees for the American Music Awards were chosen using BigChampagne Media's Ultimate Chart—which gathers data online, as well as, from retail and broadcast sources—not the Billboard 100. It's likely that, due to the wider scope of the data and analytics that the Ultimate Charts takes into consideration, the awards felt that it was the most accurate representation of artist popularity available. Still, this year's nominees won't surprise you:

Lady Antebellum and Eminem have five nominations and Justin Bieber has four.
