The Chris Brown and Rihanna dating possibilities have been discussed for weeks and months now, but the latest news is that the two singers are both part of the 2012 American Music Awards nominees. With the awards show scheduled for mid-November, they’ll be joined by other top stars such as Justin Bieber, Drake, One Direction, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift.
As reported by BOPandTigerBeat, Chris Brown finds himself nominated in the Favorite Male Artist for Soul/R&B category. He’ll be up against just Trey Songz and Usher. Meanwhile, Rihanna goes head-to-head with BeyoncÃ© and Mary J. Blige for the female version of the category. Both Breezy and Ri Ri will compete against one another in the Favorite Album-Soul R&B category, with Usher as the third nominee there.
Both Chris and Rihanna have had plenty of solo success with their albums and songs over the years, and have garnered many awards as well. In the latest event, Rihanna has four nominations, showing just how successful her latest album, “Talk That Talk,” has been. Brown’s album “Fortune” hasn’t been too shabby either.
In addition to the previous categories mentioned, Rihanna is also nominated for Artist of the Year and Favorite Female Artist in Pop/Rock. In the first of those two categories she goes up against Drake, Maroon 5, Katy Perry and Justin Bieber. In the second, she competes against Kelly Clarkson, Nicki Minaj, and Katy Perry. It could be a big night for Rihanna, but will Brown also pick up at least one award? Will their paths cross? It all depends if the two are both present for the show, which could also have Drake there, who was part of the whole Chris Brown vs. Drizzy club brawl months ago. Toss in Brown’s girlfriend Karreuche Tran for good measure, and it could be one hell of a night at the 2012 AMAs!
