Nominees for the 2007 American Music Awards were announced on Tuesday, and it's a dead heat for the honor of most-nom'd performer. Justin Timberlake came away with a trio of nods, as did Beyoncé, Linkin Park and American Idol alum Daughtry.

J.T. is up for Favorite Male Artist, Pop/Rock Album and Soul/R&B Album. Beyoncé has her sights set on a pair of Female Artist honors as well as Soul/R&B Album. L.P. is vying in the Band/Duo/Group: Pop or rock, Favorite Artist: Alternative Rock and Pop/Rock Album races, and Daughtry is looking at Breakthrough Artist, Adult Contemporary Artist and Pop/Rock Album noms.

Jimmy Kimmel is set to host ABC's Nov. 18 kudoscast.
