Michael Jackson has been nominated for five American Music Awards.

The pop legend - who died on June 25 - is in the running to be named Artist of the Year at the prestigious event and will be up against Taylor Swift, Eminem, Kings Of Leon and Lady GaGa.

The 'Thriller' singer is also nominated for Favourite Male Artist in both the Pop or Rock and the Soul/Rhythm and Blues categories, and Favourite Album for his 'Number Ones' LP in both of the categories.

Country singer Taylor Swift leads the list with six nominations, while Eminem received four.

Taylor - whose acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards last month was interrupted by Kanye West, who insisted Beyonce Knowles should have won - is up for Favourite Pop or Rock Female Artist alongside Lady Gaga and Beyonce.

She could also win Favourite Country Album, Favourite Adult Contemporary Artist, Favourite Pop or Rock Album, Favourite Female Country Artist and the prestigious Artist of the Year prize.

The nominees were selected through a measurement combining sales and radio airplay and the winners are determined by an online vote of fans. They will be announced at a Los Angeles ceremony on November 22.

Black Eyed Peas - nominated for Favourite Band, Duo or Group along with Kings of Leon and Nickelback - will perform at the ceremony along with Alicia Keys and Jennifer Lopez.
