Kiwi dance star Parris Goebel has scored herself another nod from the US music industry, nabbing another nomination for Video of the Year for her work on Justin Bieber's Sorry.

The nod this time comes from the American Music Awards, which sees Goebel joined in her category by the likes of Desiigner, Rihanna and Drake.

Goebel, whose work was also nominated for three MTV Video Music Awards, tweeted her excitement about the nomination - as did her fans.

In other big AMA news, Drake has earned a record-breaking 13 nominations thanks to his latest album Views, shattering Michael's Jackson's mark of 11 nominations in a single year from 1984 when the King of Pop had Thriller.

Rihanna got seven nominations and Adele and Justin Bieber tied with five each.

Beyonce and The Chainsmokers each received four nominations, while Bryson Tiller, Twenty One Pilots, Carrie Underwood, Fetty Wap and The Weeknd earned three nominations each.

Nominees for artist of the year are Adele, Beyonce, Bieber, Drake, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Rihanna, Twenty One Pilots, Carrie Underwood and The Weeknd. The 10 nominees will be cut in half by November 14 based on fan votes.

Nominees for the title of new artist of the year are Alessia Cara, The Chainsmokers, DNCE, Shawn Mendes and Zayn.

There is no overall song of the year category this year; instead honours will be handed out for best song in the categories of pop/rock, country, rap/hip-hop and soul/R&B.

Nominations are based on a metric that includes sales, airplay and social activity tracked by Billboard magazine and its partners. Winners are determined by fan votes on the show's website or through Facebook and Twitter.

Last year, One Direction won artist of the year honours, Taylor Swift's Blank Space was crowned song of the year and Sam Hunt was named best new artist.

The awards show will air live November 21, New Zealand time.
