Macklemore and Skylar Grey have been added to Sunday's list of performers at the 45th annual American Music Awards. The duo will perform their single "Glorious," off Macklemore's recent record Gemini.

Sunday will mark Macklemore's third performance at the AMAs, following showcases of "Can't Hold Us" in 2013 and "Kevin" 2015. This will mark his first time taking the stage without his former producer and creative partner Ryan Lewis, who joined him on both previous occasions. Sunday's broadcast will be Skylar Grey's second AMAs team-up, having previously dueted with Nicki Minaj on her song "Bed of Lies" at the 2014 ceremony.

While neither Macklemore, Skylar Grey or Gemini are nominated for any awards this time around, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis were nominated six times for AMAs, winning two for favorite rap/hip-hop artist and favorite rap/hip-hop album for The Heist.

Other performers for the evening include BTS, Portugal. The Man, Demi Lovato and plenty more.
