Known as the largest fan-voted award show, they previously announced a few select categories via Good Morning America with the rest announced through the AMA social media accounts, including rising media platform TikTok.
Nominations and categories were announced in October with Post Malone, Halsey up for Artists Of The Year and Billie Eilish finding herself in the category for Favorite Album Pop/Rock and New Artists Of The Year.
In an interview with The Sun where Osbourne spoke about the collab and revealed he had no idea who Post Malone was when he asked him for a feature.
“I’d never even heard of this kid [Post Malone],” he said. “He wanted me to sing on his song ‘Take What You Want,’ so I did and then one thing led to another.”
Punk powerhouse Green Day will be taking the stage in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Dookie, performing “Basket Case” and latest single “Father for All…”
The band previously played through the entirety of their third LP at a one-off show in Madrid. The concert took place on Wednesday, Oct. 30 at a small-venue show (only 2,500 capacity) at the Spanish venue La Riviera.
Also slated to take the stage are Billie Eilish, Lizzo, the Jonas Brothers and Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello, Selena Gomez, Kesha feat. Big Freedia. Other artists Dua Lipa, Thomas Rhett, Shania Twain, and Christina Aguilera with A Great Big World.

The award show became the first-ever to announce a few of their 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.
