What has been a breakthrough year for Alicia Keys just keeps getting better: Keys earned five 2002 American Music Award nominations, including Favorite Female Artist and Favorite New Artist in both the Pop/Rock and Soul/R&B categories.
Keys’ critically acclaimed, triple-platinum-selling Songs in A Minor also garnered a nomination for Favorite Soul/R&B Album. It will compete in that category against Aaliyah’s posthumous self-titled release and Janet Jackson’s All for You.
R. Kelly and Shaggy joined Keys as the only artists to be nominated in more than one genre. Meanwhile, the Dave Matthews Band’s electric album, Everyday, earned the band two nominations in the Pop/Rock group of categories.
New this year are two awards, the Favorite Contemporary Inspirational Artist and the Coca Cola Favorite New Artist Award. The three unsigned finalist for the latter — Carbon Leaf, Yo, Flaco! and Live Honey — will face off for the chance to play at the awards show.
The 2002 American Music Awards, hosted by Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, will air live on ABC January 9th, at 8 P.M. ET.
