The American Music Awards are one of the biggest nights dedicated to popular music, and that means loads of must-see performances. From pop forces like Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber to the act performing a Star Wars tribute, be sure to look out for these five key performances.
At last year's American Music Awards, Selena Gomez had the standout performance of the night with an emotionally charged rendition of "The Heart Wants What It Wants." A year later, she returns to the AMAs stage after releasing Revival, her most personal album to date. We're excited to see what she brings out this time, and have a feeling it will include a moving moment.
Justin Bieber's been on a roll since releasing his comeback single "What Do You Mean?," and will end the show performing a medley of hits, the AMAs say. Depending on how far back into the catalog he goes, it could be particularly eye-opening to see how far the Biebs has come from his "Baby" days.
Not only is J.Lo hosting the entire show, our girl is prepping a performance as well. There's rumors she's going to premiere a new single during the show, but whether it's new music or just a medley of hits—perhaps to hype up her upcoming Vegas residency All I Have?—we can't wait for what's sure to be a show-stopper.
Less than a month before Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters, Pentatonix will hype up music fans with by re-creating the famous score. The vocal quintet will be joined by a full symphony, so we're excited to hear what the cappella group will sound like with some accompaniment.
"Used to Love You" is Gwen Stefani's kiss-off single to ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, and she'll get her biggest stage yet to tell him off when she performs at the AMAs. We have a feeling this will be a particularly emotional performance for the No Doubt diva and we're ready to feel the #feels when she sings "I thought I was the best thing that ever happened to you / I thought you loved me the most!"
