More performers and presenters will be announced in the weeks leading up to the show.
Foo Fighters and Bruno Mars are nominated for six awards apiece, just behind Kanye West in overall nominations. Both acts are nominated for Album of the Year, among other major awards. Minaj is up for four awards including Best New Artist, while Aldean and Swift are nominated for three awards each in country music categories. Clarkson shares two nominations with Aldean for their duet "Don't You Wanna Stay," which the two will perform together on the broadcast.
