The Weeknd and Ed Sheeran are hot on the country pop star’s heels with five nominations, while Nicki Minaj, Sam Smith, and Meghan Trainor are all tied with four noms.

All the action is scheduled to go down live from Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater on November 22. Jennifer Lopez is set to host the award show for the first time.
