Macklemore performs on ABC's 'Good Morning America'

Although not the biggest awards shows in the world, the American Music Awards is still kind of a big deal. The 2013 AMAs will air on Nov. 24 on ABC, and the show is going to be star studded.

The nominations just came in and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are leading the pack, garnering six nominations, including one for Favorite Hip-Hop Artist. (Spoiler alert: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are gonna win that).

Right behind Macklemore are Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake, who both picked up five nods.

The folks at AMA also announced that Imagine Dragons and Miley Cyrus will be performing. We suspect at least one of those acts will be twerkin.’
