Veteran performers Fleetwood Mac, Celine Dion and Cher mixed with youngsters Beyonce and Avril Lavigne on the list of nominees for the 31st annual American Music Awards.

Dion received two nominations Tuesday, for favorite female pop-rock artist and favorite adult contemporary artist, where she'll face Cher and Norah Jones.

Jones, whose folksy, sensuous voice earned her five Grammys this year, is also vying for favorite pop-rock album for her platinum debut, "Come Away With Me."

No clear favorites emerged Tuesday, with two nominations each going to R. Kelly, Luther Vandross, Ashanti, Beyonce, Shania Twain, Sean Paul, Missy Elliott and Eminem.

The 20 awards will be presented during a ceremony at the Shrine Auditorium on Nov. 16, aired on ABC. The nominations are based on sales figures and radio play. Winners are selected by a survey of about 20,000 listeners.
