Iggy Azalea has been nominated for six American Music Awards (AMAs).

The 'Fancy' hitmaker leads the nominations for the annual ceremony with nods including Artist of the Year, New Artist of the Year and Single of the Year, while John Legend, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams are up for five prizes and Lorde is in the running for four.

This year has seen a change in the coveted Artist of the Year category, with the nominations expanded from five up to 10.

Iggy, John, Katy, Pharrell, Lorde, Beyonce, Luke Bryan, Eminem, Imagine Dragons and One Direction are all up for the honour but on November 13, the nominees list will be narrowed back to five based on votes cast up until that point, and the eventual winner will be based on the total number of votes during the full period.

Single of the Year has also expanded from three to five tracks, with Iggy's 'Fancy', John's 'All of Me', Katy and Juicy J's 'Dark Horse, Pharrell's 'Happy' and 'Rude' by Magic! contesting for the prize.

Jason Derulo and Charli XCX unveiled the nominations on 'Good Morning America' today (13.10.14) and voting online and via Twitter is open for all categories except New Artist of the Year, which opens on November 1.

The AMAs will broadcast on ABC live from Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre on November 23.
