The sultry reign of "Señorita" continues, as Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have added yet another awards show to their list of high-profile performances of their No. 1 single.

In addition to Mendes and Cabello's performance of their chart-topping collaboration, the American Music Awards announced on Saturday (Nov. 23) that Halsey will be joining the show's lineup and is set to sing "Graveyard," her single off her forthcoming album, Manic.

Halsey is nominated in one of the most coveted categories of the evening, artist of the year, which includes Post Malone, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Drake. "Señorita" scored a nomination for Mendes and Cabello in the collaboration of the year category, and Mendes has a chance of taking home the AMA for favorite social artist as well.

The three pop stars are in excellent company on the AMA stage, as previously announced performers include Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Selena Gomez, the Jonas Brothers, Green Day, Travis Scott and WATT, Christina Aguilera and A Great Big World and more. Swift will be honored as artist of the decade at the ceremony, and legendary songwriter and performer Carole King will present her with the award.

Ciara will host the American Music Awards, which kick off at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater on Sunday (Nov. 24) at 8 p.m. E.T./P.T.
