* = In a statement, the 2021 American Music Awards’ producers have announced that although country artist Morgan Wallen appears on this year’s AMAs list of nominees, due to nominees being “determined by performance on the Billboard Charts and are not chosen by a voting committee or membership organization,” he will not included on the live show this year.

“Morgan Wallen is a nominee this year based on charting. As his conduct does not align with our core values, we will not be including him on the show in any capacity (performing, presenting, accepting). We plan to evaluate his progress in doing meaningful work as an ally to the Black community and will consider his participation in future shows.”
