Biggest AMAs snub: Taylor Swift or Kesha?

The American Music Awards nominations are out and the Internet is upset women aren't getting their due. The few women nominated were limited to mainly female-specific categories, while all the nominees for Artist of the Year are men. But there's no lack of successful women in music. Taylor Swift returned with her #1 hit "Look What You Made Me Do." Animals and other supporters have praised Kesha's comeback and new musical direction with her "Rainbow" album. Who's the biggest snub? 🎤

Taylor topped the Billboard Hot 100 with "Look What You Made Me Do." On the hit, she addresses her critics and those who called her out as a snake. Ha! She might be getting the last laugh with a top-selling smash. That said, her hitmaker status did not earn her any AMA nods. Is there a reasonable explanation—like how late in the year the song dropped? We're not sure.

Below are some notable lyrics, per Genius

🎶 I don't like your little games. Don't like your tilted stage. The role you made me play of the fool, no, I don't like you. I don't like your perfect crime. How you laugh when you lie. You said the gun was mine Isn't cool, no, I don't like you (oh).🎶
🎶"I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now. "Why? Oh, 'cause she's dead!" (Oh).🎶

Kesha has gone through a lot in the last few years. She sued former producer Dr. Luke for sexual assault in 2014, and he counter-sued for breach of contract. Yet, she has weathered the storm. Kesha came back stronger than ever with her hit single "Praying," and topped the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart with "Rainbow." She's persevered and so many people are in support of Kesha and her music. So why isn't she nominated for any AMAs? 

Below are some notable lyrics, per Genius

🎶’Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell. I had to learn how to fight for myself. And we both know all the truth I could tell. I'll just say this is I wish you farewell.🎶

So many women in music were overlooked.
