The duo will heat up the stage with world premiere collaboration performance
Dick Clark Productions and ABC have announced that Marry Me co-stars and multi-hyphenate global superstars Jennifer Lopez and Maluma will deliver a can’t-miss world premiere performance of “Pa’ Ti” and “Lonely” at the 2020 American Music Awards (AMAs). Hosted by Taraji P. Henson, the show will broadcast live Sunday, November 22nd at 8 pm ET/ PT on ABC.
The Lopez and Maluma collaboration emphasizes the undeniable crossover success of Latin music this year, as the show has also expanded categories in both Latin and hip hop genres to match its overarching popularity. “Pa’ Ti” and “Lonely” are just two of the various songs that the pair co-wrote for the Marry Me motion picture soundtrack, making this one of the most highly anticipated performances of the night.
Continuing the AMAs tradition of providing fans with incredible collaborations, Lopez and Maluma will take the stage for what promises to be one of the most talked about performances of the year, also marking Maluma’s AMA debut. Lopez is no stranger to the AMAs stage, having hosted in 2015, where she stunned with an awe-inspiring opening performance and dazzled fans with her multiple outfit changes; and returned in 2018 for a spectacular performance of “Limitless.”
In addition to Lopez and Maluma, the AMAs world premiere performance line-up also includes previously announced Bad Bunny, BTS, Dua Lipa, Lil Baby, Megan Thee Stallion, and Shawn Mendes, making for a star-studded night of music.
As the world’s largest fan voted awards show, the AMAs gives fans the entertainment thrill they’ve been waiting for all year with first-time collaborations, exclusive world premiere performances, chart-topping favorites, and surprise appearances from music’s biggest names.
