Adele Leads American Music Awards Nominations

We get it. It’s Adele’s year alright! Everyone loves Adele! She’s sold 548 million albums this year! (I made that up)

But seriously y’all, with sales of ‘21‘ approaching 11 million copies worldwide, Adele leaves the Gargoyles and the Riris (bleats) far FAR behind. She had a major haul at the MTV VMA’s earlier this year, where nothing could stop her, irrespective of cheese-cube hat wearing, gender-bending and toy-store-crashed divas clawing it out for the awards.

And now she’s leading the 2011 American Music Awards nominations as well, with 4 nominations. Here’s the complete list of nominees below:
