While most music award shows aim to highlight the best (or most popular) achievements in song, the American Music Awards offer an unusually generous performance to award ratio. This year's AMA broadcast, for example, has 16 performances scheduled-almost double the eight performances featured at the 2014 Video Music Awards. Put simply, the AMAs don't just tell you who won. They let artists demonstrate exactly why they came out on top.

In the mix below, you'll find tracks from several acts that will be proving their worth live (on November 22nd at 8/7c)-including Nick Jonas, Walk the Moon, and The Weeknd. You'll also find nominees who might still end up on stage to pick up an award-like Ricky Martin, Calvin Harris, and Little Big Town. There's also a track from Taylor Swift, whose nominations in six different categories make her the night's main contender.

While the American Music Awards may differ from other shows in its structure, it offers the same general opportunity: a chance to take stock of what's moving people in 2015. This playlist does the exact same thing-in portable form and with an emphasis on the "moving" part. To that end, here are some of our favorite picks for a workout, organized by the category in which they were nominated...

The day when I received the device, I load all my favorites music in it, This device built-in 8GB after I load 500 songs, there are still over 6GB memory left, I will load other lovely songs in future when I collect more. I often use this music player in two way, one is that I can plug the earphone into the earphone jack, listen to music by earphone, The other way is very cool that I strongly recommend to all of you, if your car has audio port, you could connect the music player with your car by audio cable, after that you could enjoy your favorites songs on your car.Check the products here: http://boseworkout.com
