Nominees are shown for each category; winners are shown in bold.

According to the show's producers, initial nominees were selected by using ballots containing names compiled from data supplied by the music industry trade publication, Radio & Records and Nielsen Soundscan, which tracks retail music sales. Those ballots were then sent to a sampling of 15,000 people and the top three finalists for each category became nominees.

For the first time in American Music Award history, winners were chosen by the public via online votes.
