As previously reported, Arianna Grande and a duet featuring Christina Aguilera and A Great Big World will take center-stage on the night, joining a bill of performers that also includes Jennifer Lopez, TLC, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, One Direction, Florida Georgia Line, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Imagine Dragons and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, among others.

Producer Larry Klein earlier announced that Perry will open the show and Cyrus will close it out. Pitbull will host the ceremony and perform his new single "Timber" with Ke$ha.

"The show goes from intimacy to gigantic production numbers," Klein said at an early morning press conference outside the Nokia Theatre where the event will be held Sunday on ABC.
