17 Music Artists Who Went Solo

Ciara announces first six categories on "Good Morning America" Thursday: "It's a huge honor, and it makes you feel like you've really accomplished something."

Drake, The Chaimsmokers and Bruno Mars are dominating this year's nominations for the American Music Awards, the world's biggest fan-voted awards show.

Two-time AMA nominee Ciara announced the nominees for six categories live Thursday on "Good Morning America." "It's a huge honor, and it makes you feel like you've really accomplished something," she said of what a nomination means to an artist.

Halsey -- who also performed Thursday on "GMA" -- was nominated for "Closer," her hit song with The Chainsmokers. It's the pop singer's first AMA nomination.

"I was hoping! I had my fingers crossed," she said. "It's unbelievable. I think the first television performance I ever did was the AMAs ... having that come full circle is really special."

The 2017 American Music Awards will air live on Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
