The 40th annual American Music Awards will feature a lineup that will be worth tuning in to. Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, and Usher are all scheduled to perform on stage at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on November 18th and you can watch it all on ABC.
Last years AMAs featured tons of artists being recognized for their talent and creativity and this year is no different. Last month the nominations were announced and to no surprise Nicki Minaj and Rihanna were leading in four categories each. Not to worry Beliebers, Justin is right behind with three of his own… but he’s tied with the British heart throbs One Direction.
And since the AMAs are 100% fan voted, that can only mean one thing between the Beliebers and the Directioners… WAR!
Also according to Billboard, this year’s awards ceremony will feature something new: a Best Electronic Dance category, with well known names such as Skrillex, David Guetta, and Calvin Harris getting nods.
With all that being said, will YOU be tuning in November 18th to see if your vote counted?
Here are some reactions to the announcement from our 92.3 NOW personalities:
“I’m gonna watch for Christina Aguilera’s performance, so I can ‘be honest’ like she is on The Voice (also…I’m pretty sure she’s one of the best singers ever, even though she’s gotten ornery).” -Ty Bentli
“I can’t wait to see Ke$ha perform “Die Young” because it’s been a minute since she’s come out with something new and I am loving her look. She’s clean, she’s fresh! She’s got it. I am also intrigued by the Nicki Minaj/Rihanna beef. Both have been nominated for the same amount of awards so I am looking forward to seeing if any drama ensues!” -Micki Gamez
“Pitbull, Usher and Pink! Will be dope for sure but I think Christina Aguilera (Xtina if you’re nasty) is the one to watch. With all the critique about her weight plus “Lotus,” her new album which will be out the week of the AMA’s, all eyes will be on! It’s make or break for Ms. Aguilera.” -Eutopia
“Seeing P!nk perform is like seeing the world explode in front of your face. She’s amazeballs and knows how to put on a stage show! Rihanna deserves all the recognition she gets, she knows what she’s doing. I think if I were to choose between One D and Biebs, it would be Biebs. He brought it this year with his new album, his records have been on point and super sexy, each and every one. One Direction definitely has legs in the competition but not like Justin. Justin is in a league of his own with his tunes, it may have been late, but I caught Bieber fever super hard this year!” -Sasha
