“The AMAs brings together the music community to celebrate what really drives all artists — the fans,” Henson said in a statement. “I’m proud to take the stage as this year’s host — and also a fan — for what promises to be an electrifying night of music.”
This year’s event will air Sunday, Nov. 22, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC, live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
The Weeknd and Roddy Rich lead the nominees for the fan-voted awards with eight nominations, followed by Megan Thee Stallion, who received five nominations. Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, Bad Bunny and DaBaby each have four nods.
