Other major artists such as Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, The Killers and One Direction have received nominations in a variety of categories.
The awards which will this year take place in Frankfurt are considered one of the most prestigious award events in the non-U.S. music industry and even though it is a European event, it is almost always dominated by American musicians.
