If you were anticipating watching the American Music Awards this year, you would have had to download TikTok to find out who has been nominated.

The award show became the first-ever to announce their nominees via TikTok with creators Joshua Cureton, Nick Tangorra and Brittany Tomlinson participating in the content.

The three creators ended up announcing the nominees for favorite music video, best collaboration of the year and favorite social artist. This is a huge step for the app which has been progressively getting more and more popular over the last year.

The custom clips each featured the TikTok stars announcing the nominees in their own ways. Cureton made a music video incorporating themes from the videos, Tangorra put together a quick rap about the top collabs and Tomlinson opted for a straight-to-camera monologue about the top social acts.

Take a look below for the nominations including their accompanying videos.
