Halsey  'Really Disappointed' in American Music Awards 2017 for Lack of Female Nominees

Halsey is putting the 2017 American Music Awards on blast!

The 23-year-old hopeless fountain kingdom singer hit the stage on Good Morning America to perform “Bad at Love” on Thursday morning (October 12) following the announcement of this year’s AMAs nominees, but spoke out after the show to call out the major lack of female nominees.

“Really honored to have received an @AMAs nomination but really disappointed to hear near exclusively male names… such a missed opportunity,” she wrote.

“So many incredible female artists have released this year. hoping the coming award shows give them the credit that is due to them,” she added.

There are zero female nominees in categories including Video of the Year, Tour of the Year and Artist of the Year.
