THE AMA CEREMONIES MUST GO ON

American Music Award Nominations Are "Fallin'" For Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys today scored five nominations for the 29th annual American Music Awards.

The nods easily gave her the most nominations this year, with 10 acts receiving two nominations each, including NSYNC and Destiny's Child, while 35 acts, including U2 and Enrique, received one nomination each. The Dow Jones average climbed 5% on news of the honors, while Nasdaq was up 4.7% as investors reacted bullishly to Keys' triumph.

Keys was nominated for Favorite New Artist and Favorite Female Artist in both the Pop/Rock and Soul/R&B categories. Her debut J Records record, Songs In A Minor, will also compete for Favorite Soul/R&B album against the late Aaliyah's self-titled album and All For You by Janet Jackson.

The American Music Awards will take place Wednesday, Jan. 9, during a ceremony at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles that will be carried live on ABC-TV. However, with a postponement and couple of cancellations pending, expect the ceremony to actually take place some time in March.
