Drake, Ludacris Added to AMA Performers

Drake and Ludacris

In an ironic turn of events, Drake and Ludacris are the latest artists to join the list of performers at the 2011 American Music Awards.

The announcement comes on the heels of Ludacris’ fiery diss record “Bada Boom,” where he takes shots at Drake and Big Sean. “Counterfeit rappers say I’m stealin’ they flows, but I can’t steal what you never made up, bitch/ Y’all some duplicate rap cloning ni**as/ I manufacture you hos/ Put on your makeup, bitch,” he raps on the cut off his mixtape 1.21 Gigawatts: Back to the First Time.

Drizzy will perform his single “Headlines” from his new album Take Care and Luda will join Enrique Iglesias on “Tonight (I’m Lovin’ You),” their collaboration off the Latin heartthrob’s album Euphoria.

Other performers include Mary J. Blige, Chris Brown, Christina Aguilera, Marc Anthony, Justin Bieber, Kelly Clarkson, Gym Class Heroes, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, OneRepublic, and will.i.am with Jennifer Lopez. Nicki Minaj will open with David Guetta.

The show will be broadcast live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE on Sunday at 8 p.m. on ABC.

    @Lil Kim, why are you being silly? wait don’t answer that, thats rhetorical.

    what can madonna do about Gaga? or what can R kelly do about Trey? what can kim do about Nicki? NOTHING? new generation are into robbery cos they can manufacture originality.

    Anyways, Luda was there b4 all these kids so it an insult for them to claim they are being copied most especially if they also copied other people

    @@mrhoges90, Lil Kim has NEVER hosted a major awards show, Lil Kim doesnt have a #1, Lil Kim has NEVER had 7 hit singles on the Hot 100 at once, Lil Kim still dreams of working with Trey Songz & Rihanna while Nicki made those collaborations a reality. Kim has never performed on stages with the likes of Britney Spears.

    I LOVE Kim but lets not get ahead of ourselves. Kim could have had all the gold and glory in the world but instead she decided to settle for silver and the hood.

    Bottom line is the hood don’t buy your records nor do they support you. They buy your albums bootleg and make copies for their friends.

    Nicki won. Give that shit a rest. Hopefully if anything Kim took notes and learned from her loss what not to do in the future.

    @DrakeTakeCare, You must be 12 yrs old. Don’t have a clue what your talking about. Drake hasnt been around long enough to even state he is better than Ludacris which he isn’t and the fact that you brought up record sales are you serious. Drake has 2 albums and you think he is 1000 times better haahah your so stupid
