Ciara appeared on Good Morning America Thursday morning to announce the nominees for six major categories at this year’s American Music Awards and Brampton native Alessia Cara is up for an award.

Cara is going up against heavyweights Rihanna and Lady Gaga for favourite female pop/rock artist of the year.

Cara has been raking in the nominations and some pretty notable wins as of late, she snagged the best video award at the MTV Video Music Awards this past summer and a number of other nominations

In other news, fellow GTA-ers Drake and The Weeknd are also up for awards. The Weeknd for Best Collaboration of the Year and Drake for Artist of the Year — a category that’s receiving some flack for its complete lack of female presence. The two will go head to head for the Favourite Pop/Rock Album award.

Voting is now officially open for all categories and you can tune in on Sunday, November 19th to see which of Canada’s top talent brings hoe the W.
