By: Celebuzz / October 15, 2008

ABC has announced the nominees for this year’s American Music Awards, and Bond-theme girl Alicia Keys has garnered the most nominations.

The “No One” singer is nominated for Artist of the Year, Favorite Female Artist—Pop/Rock and Soul/R&B and Favorite Album—Pop/Rock and Soul/R&B.

Coldplay did almost as well as Keys, with nominations for Artist of the Year, Favorite Band, Duo, or Group, and Favorite Album.

Other multiple nominees include Chris Brown for Favorite Male Artist—Pop/Rock and Soul/R&B, Rihanna for Favorite Female Artist—Pop/Rock and Soul/R&B, Daughtry for Favorite Band, Duo, or Group and Favorite Artist—Adult Contemporary, and The Eagles for Artist of the Year, Favorite Band, Duo or Group, and Favorite Artist—Adult Contemporary.

The show will be broadcast on ABC on Nov. 23 with performances by Pink, the Jonas Brothers, Ne-Yo, the Pussycat Dolls and Taylor Swift…unless there’s a moratorium declared on awards shows and celebrations in lieu of Madonna‘s divorce.
