It’s not everyday your alarm goes off at 5am and you wake up with a smile, but when you get to spend the entire morning with Lance Bass, Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland, Michael Buckley (What the Buck), Glee’s Josh Sussman and Disney’s Mitchel Musso … well that’s exactly what happened!

They were all together yesterday morning in downtown Los Angeles for the American Music Awards 2011 Nominations press conference.  And I was lucky enough to be right in the thick of the behind the scenes action and spoke with them all – so yes there are more videos to come!

Nicki Minaj, in what looked like a bikini top, and Pitbull were a total riot together announcing the nominations. No surprise that a very deserving Adele lead the pack with four nominations followed by Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, The Band Perry, Lil Wayne and Lady Gaga with three nominations.

I will keep you posted on all things AMAs but for now be sure to tune into the American Music Awards on Nov. 20th at 8pm e/t and p/t on ABC!

Here's a glimpse at the madness:

And a quick chat with Buck Hollywood:
