I cannot tell you how excited I am to watch Bruno Mars bring a ton of 24K Magic to the American Music Awards tonight. He is one of my favourite performers on the planet – such a phenomenon. No current artist can touch him. He is Bruno. From Mars. And hence the name. (C’mon, you really didn’t think that was his original name, did you? It’s Peter Gene Hernandez).
But, I digress. I must go back to the original reason for this article and stop being a fan girl.
The American Music Awards will air on Sunday, November 20th at 8:00 PM on ABC at the Microsoft Theatre. Unlike the Grammys, the AMAs are determined by a poll of the public and fans, who can vote through the AMAs website.
Scheduled Performers, besides Bruno Mars, are:
- Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj — “Side To Side”
- Fifth Harmony — “That’s My Girl”
- James Bay
- The Weeknd
- Green Day
- John Legend — “Love Me Now”
- Lady Gaga — “Million Reasons”
- Shawn Mendes — “Mercy”
- Twenty One Pilots — “Heathens”
- Niall Horan — “This Town”
- DJ Khaled feat. Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Future & August Alsina —”Do You Mind”
- Maroon 5 & Kendrick Lamar — “Don’t Wanna Know”
- The Chainsmokers & Halsey — “Closer”
And, it looks like Justin Bieber is back once again. Good for him! He is nominated for Artist Of The Year and Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist. He will have some stiff competition in the former category from American Idol alum Carrie Underwood and others. But, his fans may come through for him.
So, it is almost showtime. Here we go! Comment away. And have a listen to #24K Magic over at Apple Music. So, SO good.
