Dick Clark Productions has announced that Luke Bryan, Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will perform on the 2013 American Music Awards, which will broadcast live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE on Sunday, November 24th from 8-11 pm ET/PT on ABC. All artists join previously announced performers Miley Cyrus, Florida Georgia Line, Imagine Dragons and One Direction. Additional acts and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.
Preceding the ABC broadcast for the fifth consecutive year will be the Coca-Cola Red Carpet LIVE! @ The 2013 AMAs pre-show hosted by Lance Bass, Rosie Pierri, Jordin Sparks and Jenna Ushkowitz. This year’s pre-show performers will include Kurt Hugo Schneider, Jabbawockeez, Jesse McCartney and Fifth Harmony. Live coverage will stream online for fans worldwide starting at 5 pm ET/2 pm PT on November 24th and for the first time will be available on Yahoo.com, this year’s official digital distributor of the American Music Awards Experience. The stream can also be watched at TheAMAs.com, ABC.com, Time Warner Cable’s Facebook page, and the websites within the Cumulus Radio Network, the AMAs official radio partner.
The American Music Awards are voted on by the fans. For the seventh year in a row, winners will be determined by online voting. Fans can vote at the Coca-Cola AMA voting site, AMAvote.com. In addition, for the first time in AMAs History, fans will also be able to vote for their favorite artists via Twitter.
Viewers will also get a second-screen experience jam-packed with “snack-able” videos, photos, GIFs, memes, “Insta-Fashion Pops,” “Thank You Cam” shout outs, and much more across every major social platform.
In collaboration with Twitter, Twitter Mirrors will be placed in select backstage areas. The “selfie stations” will provide a candid look into the backstage scene. Also this year, the AMAs and Twitter will debut the first-ever Vine 360 Fashion Booth placed right in the middle of the red carpet. Fashion buffs around the world will have a front row seat to an unparalleled close look at celebrity red carpet fashion – in real time.
