Some of the hottest names in music are nominated for American Music Awards this year, with Iggy Azalea leading the pack with six nods. But one name is conspicuously missing from the list of nominees — Ariana Grande! See what her furious fans are saying on Twitter.
Ariana Grande, 21, wowed the world with one hit after another in 2014 — from “Problem” to “Break Free” to “Bang Bang” — so it’s no wonder fans were shocked by her major 2014 American Music Awards snub. Here’s what the Twitterverse is saying.
Ariana Grande’s AMA Nomination Snub: Fans React To Her Not Being Nominated
As excited as we are for the 2014 American Music Awards, we’re pretty miffed that one of our favorite singers is being given the cold shoulder. And so are the rest of Ari’s fans:

Let’s not forget that last year, Ariana won New Artist of the Year at the 2013 American Music Awards, right after she gave an amazing performance of her hit song “Tattooed Heart.”
It’s a shame that Ari won’t be honored at this year’s show but hopefully she will take comfort in knowing that her fans still hold her successes close to their tattooed hearts!
Jason Derulo and Charli XCX announced the nominees for the 2014 American Music Awards on Good Morning America on Oct. 13. Iggy Azalea received a stunning six nominations, including one for the coveted Artist of the Year category.
So who do YOU think should win the AMA for Artist of the Year, HollywoodLifers? Are you upset that Ariana was snubbed?
Remember to vote for all of your favorite stars before the 2014 American Music Awards show kicks off live from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday, Nov. 23 from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on ABC!
