Olivia Rodrigo leads the nominations for the 2021 American Music Awards (AMAs).

The 18-year-old singer has landed seven nods in the shortlists for this year's ceremony, followed closely behind by The Weeknd with six, and Bad Bunny, Doja Cat and Giveon, who are all up for five awards.

Olivia is nominated in the Artist, Favourite Female Pop Artist and New Artist of the Year categories, while 'Drivers License' is up for Favorite Trending Song, Music Video, and Pop Song, and her song 'Sour' is shortlisted for Favorite Pop Album, putting her in with a good chance of breaking the record for most wins for a first-time nominee, which is currently held by Justin Bieber and Olivia Newton-John with four each.

Olivia will contest the Artist of the Year Awards against The Weeknd, last year's winner Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, BTS, and Drake.

Taylor and Ariana will also compete for Female Pop Artist against Olivia, Doja Cat and Dua Lipa, while the Male Pop Artist will see Justin Bieber attempt to take the accolade for the second year in a row if he can beat off competition from The Weeknd, Ed Sheeran, Drake, and Lil Nas X.

The Weeknd is also up for Favorite Male R&B Artist, as well Favorite Music Video and Pop Song for 'Save Your Tears' and Favorite Latin Song for 'Hawai', his collaboration with Maluma.

Taylor currently holds the record for most AMA wins of all time with 32, so will be hoping to add to her total again at the ceremony, at which her record 'evermore' is also up for Favorite Pop Album.

The fan-voted awards show is set to air from Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater on ABC on 21 November.
