Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar To Perform At American Music Awards

They will join Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miley Cyrus and One Direction.

Little Monsters will already be gorging themselves on the feast of goodies Lady Gaga has in store for them when ARTPOP (and its accompanying app) drops on November 11. But now they can look forward to another feast on November 24, when Gaga takes the stage to perform at the 2013 American Music Awards.

She’s the latest act added to the performance roster of the show, which has also added Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Luke Bryan. The fan-voted show, which will be broadcast live from the Nokia Theater L.A. on the 24th, will also feature previously announced sets from Miley Cyrus, One Direction, Imagine Dragons and Florida Georgia Line. More acts and presenters will be announced in the upcoming weeks.

This year’s pre-show red carpet special will be hosted by Lance Bass, Jordin Sparks, Jenna Ushkowitz and Rosie Pierri and feature performances from Fifth Harmony, Jesse McCartney, Jabbawockeez and Kurt Hugo Schneider.

Mack and Lewis lead all nominees 
 this year, pulling down six nominations, including Artist of the Year, which will pit the Seattle rapper against Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars. Swift and Timberlake are behind the “Thrift Shop” duo with five nominations each, with Robin Thicke and Rihanna pulling down four apiece.
