The soon-to-be-18-year-old singer will headline this year’s AMAs along with One Direction and Fergie, both of whom have new albums on the horizon. Fergie will perform her new single “L.A. Love” while 1D will play a song from their impending album Four.
Lorde hasn’t announced a sophomore album yet, but she is the creative curator of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 1 soundtrack. Fingers crossed she brings Miguel & Chemical Brothers to perform their Hunger Games collabo.
Lorde is up for four AMAs this year, while Iggy Azalea leads the pack with six noms. Previously announced performers include 5 Seconds of Summer, Sam Smith, Mary J. Blige and Charli XCX.
Pitbull is set to host the Nov. 23 ceremony, which will be broadcast live from L.A.’s Nokia Theatre.
