Nominees for the 2007 American Music Awards, produced by dick clark productions, inc., were announced today during a press conference at The Beverly Hills Hotel. Present for the announcement was comedian, writer and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who is returning for his fourth time to host the 35th anniversary of the popular awards show. Actress and singer Ashanti and pop rock group the Jonas Brothers were also on hand to announce the list of nominees.

For the first time in American Music Awards history, winners will be determined by online voting at ama.abc.com (votes will be collected from Oct. 9 to Nov. 1). Winners will be announced at the 2007 American Music Awards ceremony, which will be broadcast live on ABC, SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 18 (8:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in downtown Los Angeles.

Justin Timberlake, Beyonc�, Linkin Park and Daughtry lead the pack with three nominations each. Timberlake is nominated for Favorite Male Artist. His album, "Future Sex/Love Sounds," is up for Favorite Album: Pop/Rock and Favorite Album: Soul/Rhythm & Blues. Beyonc� is nominated for Favorite Female Artist: Pop or Rock and Favorite Female Artist: Soul/Rhythm & Blues. Her album, "B'Day," was nominated for Favorite Album: Soul/Rhythm & Blues. Linkin Park is nominated for Favorite Band, Duo or Group: Pop or Rock; Favorite Artist: Alternative Rock Music. Their album, "Minutes to Midnight," is up for Favorite Album: Pop or Rock. Newcomer Daughtry is nominated for Favorite Breakthrough Artist; Favorite Artist: Adult Contemporary Music. His self-titled album, "Daughtry," is up for Favorite Album: Pop or Rock.

Initial nominees were selected by using ballots containing names compiled from data supplied by the music industry trade publication, Radio & Records and Nielsen Soundscan, which tracks retail music sales. The ballots were then sent to a national sampling of more than 15,000 people based on what type of music they listen to, what they buy and how many albums they purchase per year. The sampling also took into account geographic location, age, sex and ethnic origin. The top three vote getters were determined to be the nominees for this year's American Music Awards.

New Online Voting Procedures

The American Music Awards also announced that for the first time music fans will be able to choose which nominated artists ultimately win the coveted awards. This year members of the public can vote for nominated artists by going online and vote at ama.abc.com. The ama.abc.com website will be active from October 9 through November 1, 2007.

dick clark productions, which was recently acquired by RedZone Capital, came up with the concept to open the voting to the public online after the nominations process was completed when the Company started planning the 35th anniversary edition of the awards show. After examining the show's roots, and how the voting was conducted in the past, the Company's new management decided that the internet provided an ideal way to determine which musical recording artists were truly America's favorite artists in each of the twenty different categories.

"When we acquired the Company, we decided to examine what the American Music Awards was all about. We determined that the show was designed to tap into the views of the record buying public and reward America's most successful and favorite musical acts," said Terry Bateman, CEO of dick clark productions. "The internet allows us a way to bring millions of potential voters into the voting process. Now instead of limiting the voting to thousands of people, millions of people will have the opportunity to vote. It is America's awards show, so why not let the public choose which nominees win?"

The voting process is being conducted in conjunction with ABC and is being overseen by the accounting firm Ernst & Young.
