Congrats, Iggy Azalea!

The Australian rapper tops this year's list of American Music Awards nominees with six nominations, including Artist of the Year, New Artist of the Year and Single of the Year for "Fancy."

Not too bad for someone who has never even been nominated for an AMA in the past.

John Legend, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams each received five nominations, while Lorde is up for four.

Surprisingly, Beyoncé is only nominated three times, as are Eminem, Imagine Dragons, OneRepublic and One Direction. Bastille, Drake, Luke Bryan and Sam Smith each received two nominations.

The Favorite Male Artist: Pop/Rock nominees include Legend, Smith and Williams.

In the New Artist of the Year category, Azalea is up against 5 Seconds of Summer, Bastille, Smith and Meghan Trainor.

The "Black Widow" singer is the lone female in the Favorite Artist for Rap/Hip-Hop with Eminem and Drake also up for the prize. The same three compete in Favorite Album: Rap/Hip-Hop.

In the country category, nominees for Favorite Male Artist of the Year include Bryan, Jason Aldean and Blake Shelton. Female Artist of the Year for country is a battle between Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert and Kacey Musgraves.
