Here’s something to scream about: One Direction may be added to the lineup with the 2015 American Music Awards.
The superstar pop group will do their new song “Perfect” for the AMAs, which happen Nov. 22 at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater.
The fourpiece — Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson — really should be familiar with format with the AMAs. The group (then this five piece) won three trophies last year’s ceremony — artist with the year; favorite duo or group, pop/rock; and favorite album, pop/rock. And they’ve won yet another two trophies from previous editions. This time, the boy band is nominated by 50 % categories, including artist with the year. Check One Direction Home sheet music.
“Perfect” originates from 1D’s forthcoming fifth studio album Made In The A.M. which can be scheduled to lower on Nov. 13. The arrival of “Perfect” earlier this year prompted 1.6 000 0000 Twitter mentions in a week.
ABC will air the AMAs, which Jennifer Lopez hosts to the first time. The Latin pop icon will likely perform for the night, as well as a confirmed batch of talent such as Aussie pop-punk outfit 5 Seconds of Summer, pop star Selena Gomez and celebrated country artist Carrie Underwood.
Taylor Swift is regarded as the nominated artist as of this year’s awards with six, though The Weeknd, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Nicki Minaj and Meghan Trainor are close behind. AMAs nominees provide key fan interactions as reflected in Billboard Magazine and also on Billboard.com, including album and digital singles sales, radio airplay, streaming, social activity and touring. These measurements are tracked by Billboard as well as its data partners, including Nielsen Entertainment and Next Big Sound.
Also, the AMAs and Twitter are launching custom Twitter emojis for all those performers. Each performer can have featured Twitter emojis to celebrate their appearances as they’re announced. To activate the emojis, tweet all of following hashtags from today from the end on the show. The hashtag for One Direction is #AMAs1D, while emojis are for sale to 5SOS (#5SOSonAMAs); Gomez (#RevivalAMAs) and Underwood (#CarrieonAMAs).
