Taylor took home top honours last year, snagging the Dick Clark Award of Excellence with an introduction from none other than music legend Diana Ross.

"What you did by going out and investing in music and albums is you are saying that you believe in the same thing that I believe in: that music is valuable and music should be consumed in albums and albums should be consumed as art and appreciated," Taylor said to fans upon accepting the inaugural award.

While this year's recipient is yet to be revealed, Ed Sheeran is another shining star sure to take home a statue or two thanks to nominations for Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Favourite Male Artist: Pop/Rock, Favourite Pop/Rock Album and Favourite Artist: Adult/Contemporary.

Canadian crooner The Weeknd scooped up an impressive trio of nominations (Artist of the Year, New Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for summer banger "Can't Feel My Face"), while fellow Canuck Drake is flirting with Favourite Artist: Rap/Hip-Hop.
