After scoring a No. 1 albumPentatonix's 2015 just keeps getting better with a just-announced performance at the 2015 American Music Awards, which sounds like it might be the standout moment of the night.

The a cappella group will perform the classic score from Star Wars at the Nov. 22 ceremony, less than a month before the new episode of the series hits theaters. The quintet will recreate John Williams' famous composition with just their mouths while backed by a full symphony orchestra—an opportunity that makes us wonder if PTX will begin taking on other non-totally-a cappella performances soon.

The vocal group joins the 2015 AMA lineup of previously-announced artists including 5 Seconds of SummerSelena GomezOne DirectionDemi LovatoNick JonasCarrie Underwood and Walk the MoonJennifer Lopez will host the show, and will also perform.

Check out the full list of AMA nominees right here. The show airs on ABC on Nov. 22, while Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on Dec. 18.
