The 2013 American Music Awards just got more star-studded, with three new additions to the roster of performers for the show. Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez and TLC will join other names like One Direction, Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus and Imagine Dragons, who were already announced.
Perry will open the show with “Unconditionally,” in support of her new album “Prism,” while Lopez, who is headed back to “American Idol” for a second stint as judge on the singing competition, will perform a tribute to Celia Cruz, a Cuban salsa legend.
TLC is an interesting addition. The two surviving members are in the middle of some kind of comeback that began with their biopic airing in VH1. They are set to appear with a special guest, most likely J. Cole, who they collaborate with on the new single “Crooked Smile.”
Other acts on the show include Ke$ha, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Lady Gaga, Florida George Line and more. The 2013 American Music Awards, hosted by Pitbull, are Sunday (November 24) at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
