Little Monsters rejoice: Lady Gaga is coming to the 2016 American Music Awards.

The singer, songwriter, actress and activist will perform on Nov. 20, though fans will have to wait and see which number Mother Monster chooses to deliver. 

The pop superstar is back in the spotlight with her latest album Joanne, which is on target to earn Gaga her fourth No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart (she previously topped the survey with her collaborative Tony Bennett album Cheek to Cheek, along with her solo efforts ARTPOP and Born This Way). 

 

Gaga recently knocked down two of her three Dive Bar Tour dates, most recently welcoming Mark Ronson on stage in New York, and she performed on last weekend’s Saturday Night Live. She’ll appear on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke tonight (Oct. 25) and she's slated to own the halftime show at the 2017 Super Bowl.

Gaga is no stranger to the AMAs. She’s a nine-time AMA nominee, taking out the favorite female artist – pop/rock category in 2010. And she’s graced the AMA stage before, performing a medley of “Bad Romance” and “Speechless" in 2009, and joining R. Kelly for “Do What U Want" in 2013.

Gaga joins American Music Award of Merit recipient Sting and opening act Bruno Mars as the first performers confirmed for the 2016 event. 

 

The AMAs is set to broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Nov. 20 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC and is produced by dick clark productions. Drake leads with a record 13 nominations for the fan-voted awards show, while Rihanna has seven and Adele and Justin Bieber each have five.
