Azalea is up for six nominations followed by John Legend, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams who are up for five.

Iggy, up for the “New Artist of the Year Award” and too, “Artist of the Year” for her single Fancy, is up against some pretty heavy hitters like Beyonce, Eminem, Katy Perry and One Direction just to name a few.
