American Idol Finalist Chris Daughtry Nominated For Three 2007 American Music Awards

October 09, 2007 11:08 PM by Joe Blackmon

2007 American Music Awards nominees were announced recently during a
press conference at The Beverly Hills Hotel.  Talk show host Jimmy
Kimmel is returning for his fourth time to host the 35th anniversary of
the popular awards show.

For the first time in American Music Awards history, winners will be determined by online voting at ama.abc.com (votes will be collected from Oct. 9 to Nov. 1).  Winners will be announced at the 2007 American Music Awards ceremony, which will be broadcast live on ABC on Sunday, November 18 from 8:00PM to 11:00PM ET/PT from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in downtown Los Angeles.

American Idol finalist Chris Daughtry received three nominations.  Daughtry is nominated for Favorite Breakthrough Artist and Favorite Artist: Adult Contemporary Music. His self-titled album, “Daughtry,” is up for Favorite Album: Pop or Rock.  Daughtry is also confirmed to perform at the awards show.

Daughtry was not the only former American Idol contestant nominated.  American Idol 4 winner Carrie Underwood is up for Favorite Female Artist: Country, and her album “Some Hearts” is up for Favorite Album: Country.  American Idol 3 winner Fantasia is up for Favorite Female Artist: Soul/Rhythm & Blues.

Initial nominees were selected by using ballots containing names compiled from data supplied by the music industry trade publication, Radio & Records and Nielsen Soundscan, which tracks retail music sales. The ballots were then sent to a national sampling of more than 15,000 people based on what type of music they listen to, what they buy and how many albums they purchase per year. The sampling also took into account geographic location, age, sex and ethnic origin. The top three vote getters were determined to be the nominees for this year’s American Music Awards.

    Congrats to Chris Daughtry and his band’s much deserved success. I knew watching his season of Idol he would be the one to beat. He may not have won the show but he is the most successful! Take that Simon!!!

    Why take that Simon? Simon didn’t vote him out, the viewers did.
    Simon did not favor what’s his name, gray haired dude who won that year.
    Blame the teenyboppers who do the majority of voting.

    KUDOS to Chris Daughtry. He deserves all of AMA award nominations and every bit of the media attention he has. He got robbed by the limelight of being the winner of AI. Somewhere the gray haired dude is saying what the >>>? This guy should have won. I was terrible with all those spastic and lame moves I made and it didn’t get any of the public to buy my loungey music.

    Get over it already.This article has nothing to do with Taylor, so it is obvious you guys are still hung up on the fact that he didn’t win.Geesh!!!!Nice to be nominated, but sending ballots out to around 15,000 people isn’t exactly the whole country, so I’m sure there are many thousands more that prefer other artists, but that’s the way it works I guess.Voting online will take any and all credibility from the awards anyway.
