The American Music Awards are scheduled to happen in less than two weeks, and now they have added a number of new artists to the already announced line up for performers. Previously, they had confirmed that Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Florida Georgia Line, Imagine Dragons, One Direction, Luke Bryan and Kendrick Lamar would be performing at the show and now we can add-on Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry and TLC.
Jennifer Lopez will take the stage to perform a tribute to late Cuban singer and music legend, Celia Cruz while Katy Perry will open the live show with her current single from her new album, “Unconditionally.” As for TLC, they are riding on the coattails of the recently release autobiography about their life and career. Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas will take the stage with a special guest; we’re feeling it might be Keke Palmer of Lil’ Mama who were in the autobiography.
The AMAs are one of the first award shows of the season and one of the only ones that allows the fans to choose who will go home as winners. Nominees for this year’s event include Macklemore and Ryan Lewis who are leading the path with six nominations for “Thrift Shop,” Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift are tied with five nominations while Rihanna, Robin Thicke and Florida Georgia Line lag behind with four.
This year also marks the first year that fans could vote on Twitter.
The event will be hosted by Pitbull and will take place at the Nokia Theater in L.A. on Sunday, November 24, starting at 8 P.M. EST; the show will air live on ABC.
