Taylor Swift Dominates 2013 Teen Choice Awards Nominees With Three Nods
Taylor Swift was a major winner at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, and she has another chance to score big at this year’s Teen Choice Awards. The ‘Everything Has Changed’ hitmaker has been nominated for three awards, leading the pack of superstars in the first wave of nominees.
Rivaled only by the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, which has a whopping seven nominations, Swift has a chance to win Choice Smile, Choice Female Country Artist and the prestigious Choice Female Artist. Last year, she won all five awards she was nominated for — including Choice Female Artist — but this year she’ll have to beat out her bestie Selena Gomez (will there be another memorable kiss with Justin Bieber?), Demi Lovato, Pink and Rihanna to nab that surfboard.
Other country favorites nominated for the annual awards show include Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Hunter Hayes and Blake Shelton for Choice Male Country Artist. Hayes was the winner last year, and will probably be itching to defend his title again.
In addition to Swift, other country gals nominated for Choice Female Country Artist include Jana Kramer, Miranda Lambert, newcomer Kacey Musgraves and Carrie Underwood. It will be a tough call, as all those women are favorites on the country scene right now.
The 2013 Teen Choice Awards will air Sunday, August 11 on Fox at 8PM ET. Starting this week, fans ages 13-19 can vote for their favorite nominees here. Additional information — including host(s), performers, presenters and more nominees — will be announced soon.
