Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, & John Legend to Perform at AMAs
The stars are coming out for the American Music Awards. Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj have joined the star-studded list of performers for this year’s show.
Following their VMA performance in August, the pop and rap royalty will reunite to perform their top 10 hit “Side to Side” at the AMAs, each celebrating their fourth time on that stage.
Additionally, John Legend—whose new album Darkness and Light drops Dec. 2—will make his AMA debut.

That’s a lot of star power, but only a fraction of the talent on the bill. Other performers include Lady Gaga, Fifth Harmony, James Bay, The Chainsmokers with Halsey, Carlos Vives with Shakira, Green Day, Twenty One Pilots, Sting (this year’s AMA Merit Honoree), and Bruno Mars, who will open the show.
Drake, who is not scheduled to perform, is up for a record-setting 13 trophies. So far, he hasn’t won any AMAs, but this could soon change. Rihanna, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, and Adele could also end up being some of the night’s big winners.
The AMAs will air live from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Nov. 20 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
