The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, Mary J. Blige, is confirmed for the American Music Awards.
Slated to air Sunday, November 23 on ABC, the celebration of music will include performances from Blige and Sam Smith, along with recently added performances from One Direction, Lorde and Fergie.
"Fergie will take to the stage to make her worldwide television debut performing her first single, since 2006, “L.A. LOVE (la la),” from her upcoming album. After stealing the music scene in 2013, Lorde will be performing for the first time at the 2014 American Music Awards. International sensation One Direction will perform a song off of their highly anticipated album, FOUR. In just four short years, the band has achieved a staggering 94 number one tracks and over 46 million records sold," ABC reports.
The 2014 American Music Award nominations were announced earlier this month, revealing that Iggy Azalea is up for six awards–the most of any artist. Other top contenders include John Legend, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams, who each earned five nominations, and Lorde who earned four.
The 2014 American Music Awards will broadcast live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE on Sunday, November 23 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on ABC. Additional performers and presenters will be announced soon.
