The nominations for the 2014 American Music Awards are in and they highlight the best of the year. One of the categories we were most looking forward to was Favorite Latin Artist. Three of the biggest Latin names were nominated in this category and will now be competing for the AMA. Enrique Iglesias, Romeo Santos and Marc Anthony will duke it out in that category and take home the accolade. All three have had an incredible year, keeping relevant and busting out the tunes that we all love listening to in the car after a long day at work, during an intense workout routine or just relaxing at home. The singer with the most nods this year was the Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, dominating the list with six. She scored nominations in Artist Of The Year, New Artist Of The Year, Single Of The Year for "Fancy," Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album for "The New Classic."

Another category that boasts several fan favorites is the Top Soundtrack with "Frozen," "The Fault In Our Stars" and "Guardians Of The Galaxy: Awesome Mix, Vol. 1" competing for the award. "Let It Go" and "Do You Want To Build A Snowman?" were some of the biggest songs this year that had kids chanting all day long. The big category for the night is Artist Of The Year with the following nominees: Iggy Azalea, Beyoncé, Luke Bryan, Eminem, Imagine Dragons, John Legend, Lorde, One Direction, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams. That's going to be one hard category to decide on a winner as they are all deserving. The AMAs will air on ABC live from the Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live on November 23 starting at 8pm ET/PT.
