American Music Award for Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist

The American Music Award for Favorite Male Artist – Pop/Rock has been awarded since 1974. Years reflect the year in which the awards were presented, for works released in the previous year (until 2003 onward when awards were handed out on November of the same year). There is a four-way tie for most wins in this category. Eric Clapton, Michael Bolton, Michael Jackson, Barry Manilow and Justin Bieber each have three wins. Michael Jackson is the most nominated male artist with 7 nominations and is the only singer to have won this award in three separate decades (80s, 90s and 00s).
