On Tuesday, it was announced that Shawn Mendes, Megan Thee Stallion, Bad Bunny and rap star Lil Baby will light up the stage on the big night hosted by Taraji P. Henson.

The chart-toppers will wow fans during the ceremony which airs live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Nov. 22 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. They join previously announced AMAs performers Dua Lipa and K-pop boy band BTS.

The biggest fan voted awards show in the music industry is jam-packed with star-studded showcases. Latin artist Bad Bunny will bring some international flair to the show with his native music which he will perform alongside rising Reggaeton artist Jhay Cortez.
