As announced on tonight's "Dancing with the Stars," multiplatinum-selling hip-hop/R&B group, Bell Biv DeVoe and double diamond-selling, chart-topping hitmaker, Nelly, will each perform a medley of memorable club-banging hits at the "2020 American Music Awards" (AMAs). Hosted by Taraji P. Henson, the show will broadcast live Sunday, Nov. 22 at 8 p.m. EST/ PST, on ABC.
Three-time American Music Award-winning group Bell Biv DeVoe returns to the AMAs with their scorching hot back-in-the-day singles, "Do Me" and "Poison." Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins and Ronnie DeVoe made their AMA stage debut nearly 30 years ago with their 1991 hot No. 1 single, "B.B.D. (I Thought It Was Me?)," from their debut studio album, "Poison."
Megastar Nelly will take fans back to the start of the new millennium with a blazing performance of his anthems "Country Grammar," "E.I." and "Ride Wit Me." Currently competing on "Dancing with the Stars" and a three-time American Music Award winner, the hip-hop dynamo won his first AMA in 2002 for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist, followed by the Fan's Choice Award in 2003, and again in 2013 for Single of the Year with Florida Georgia Line for their hit, "Cruise."
In addition to Bell Biv DeVoe and Nelly, the AMAs lineup also includes previously announced Bad Bunny with Jhay Cortez, BTS, Dua Lipa, Jennifer Lopez and Maluma, Katy Perry, 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.
