Nicki Minaj & Pitbull Take A Moment 4 Life & Announce The 2011 American Music Awards Nominees

Early this morning pop stars Nicki Minaj & Pitbull announced the nominees for the 2011 American Music Awards at LA Live in Downtown Los Angeles.

Nicki appeared to be summoning her smurf side with a hairdo that was half blonde and half blue and matched that with a cute bikini top and fluffy ’50s inspired skirt.

Pitbull looked slick as usual in his typical uniform of a perfectly tailored suit pairing it with a bright red tie.

The two appeared to have a blast on stage announcing the AMA nominees, including  Kelly Rowland, Trey Songz, Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne and Rihanna, each with three nominations.  While Pitbull and Nicki also received two nominations each.

Overall, the most nominations went to British pop artist Adele, walking away with four nods, including Album Of The Year, but will she win?
