British boy band One Direction and country duo Florida Georgia Line are the latest to join the American Music Awards lineup.
Dick Clark Productions announced today that the groups will perform during the show, which is set for Nov. 24 on ABC at 8 p.m. The two join Imagine Dragons and Miley Cyrus, who signed up to perform earlier this month.
“Florida Georgia Line and One Direction have made an incredible impact over the past three years," prodicer Larry Klein said in a statement. “We are thrilled to have them make their AMA debut performances this year."
One Direction has released two albums, Up All Night and Take Me Home. Their latest single is “Best Song Ever” and they are about to release “Story of My Life.” They are up for two awards: Favorite Band, Duo or Group - Pop/Rock and Favorite Album - Pop/Rock for Take Me Home.
Florida Georgia Line has scored hits with “Cruise,” “Get Your Shine On” and “Round Here.” They have been nominated for four awards: Favorite Band, Duo or Group - Country; Favorite Album - Country for Here’s To The Good Times; New Artist of the Year; and Single of the Year for “Cruise.”
The winners are chosen by fans, who can go to AMAvote.com to vote. Fans can also use Twitter by tweeting at an artist and using the hashtag “#AMAs.”
