Taio Cruz gets AMA nod

RnB star Taio Cruz has been nominated for an American Music Award.

Cruz is up for Breakthrough Artist of the year against Mike Posner, Travie McCoy, Jason Derulo, Lady Antebellum, Justin Bieber, B.o.B and Ke$ha who he collaborated with on ‘Dirty Picture’.

The UK singer/songwriter/producer had great crossover success in 2009 with dance-infused song ‘Break Your Heart’ which went to number one on the American Billboard, Swiss and Canadian charts in addition to top 10 positions in several other countries. This success was emulated with his recent track ‘Dynamite' cementing Cruz’s global star status.

The American Music Awards take place on November 21.
