We just received our first performer announcement for theÂ 2016 American Music AwardsÂ and we could not be more excited about it!
ABC and dick clark productions revealed that global superstarÂ Bruno MarsÂ will be opening up the show with a special performance. This marks the singer, songwriter, producer, and musician’sÂ first performance on the American Music Awards stage.Â In 2011, he took home the trophy for Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist, and has been nominated seven times throughout his career.
We’re hoping that Mars will perform his new singleÂ â€œ24K Magic,â€ which debuted this week at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking Marsâ€™ highest debut to date and his 13th Hot 100 Top 10. Mars is set to release his highly-anticipated third album 24K Magic on November 18th.
Make sure to catch theÂ 2016 American Music AwardsÂ Sunday, November 20th @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
