OutKast, Shania Twain, Pharrell, matchbox twenty and Kid Rock will perform at VH1's "Big in '03" comedy/variety show celebration of the year in pop culture. The show will be taped Nov. 20 at Los Angeles' Universal Amphitheater and air Nov. 30 on VH1.

The event has undergone a format tweak for the second straight year. The former My VH1 Music Awards show, which last year was transformed into the VH1 Big in 2002 Awards, will now not be a traditional awards show at all, but rather a look back at notable 2003 happenings.

Nevertheless, VH1 will hand out trophies in categories ranging from "The Big Wow Moment of '03" to "Really Big Reality Star," "Big Entertainer" and "Big One-Liner." Other categories include "Biggest Celebrity Trend," "Big on the Web," "Made It Big," "Big Goodbye" and "Biggest Guiltiest Pleasure."

Jessica Simpson, Paula Abdul, comedians David Spade and D.L. Hughley, and more celebrities will be on hand to distribute the awards. For more information, visit VH1's official Web site.
