As a performer, Taylor's good works include a benefit concert for tornado victims in the southeastern United States and a donation of $250,000 to football coach Nick Saban's charity Nick's Kids, as well as her work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, St. Jude Children's Hospital and Habitat for Humanity. In the Music Artist category, she faces off against Adam Lambert, Shakira, Will.i.am, Katy Perry and One Direction.
When it comes to social media, Taylor has been making waves since the beginning of career, so it's no surprise Do Something has taken notice of how she uses various platforms for good deeds. She's nominated in the Facebook category for using the networking site to respond to leukemia patient Kevin McGuire's prom invitation, which garnered more than 100,000 "likes" from fans. Also up for the award are Ben Affleck, Lenny Kravitz, Matt Damon and Taylor's bestie, Selena Gomez.
Country's reigning power couple, Miranda and Blake are taking on some of music, television and film's hottest pairs in the Couple category. The pair are being recognized for a benefit concert which raised $70,000 for a veteran's program and an animal shelter in Tishomingo, Okla. Also nominated are Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia di Rossi, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, and Jay-Z and Beyoncé.
