J.I.D, Tems, others to perform at American Music Awards

The performers who will take the stage at the 2022 American Music Awards in November have been unveiled, including J.I.D and Tems.

The 2022 American Music Awards announced on Monday (October 31) that Wizkid and D-Nice will also make an appearance on a stacked pop-heavy roster that includes P!NK and Carrie Underwood, according to HipHopDX.

Hosted by Wayne Brady, the 2022 American Music Awards will air from Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater on Sunday, November 20 at 8:00 p.m. EST/PST on ABC. The show will stream the very next day on Hulu, and additional performers plan to be announced in the coming weeks.

As far as nominations go, Canadian comrades Drake and The Weeknd are fighting for Artist Of The Year, while Steve Lacy and Latto are nominated for New Artist of The Year. Beyoncé, Lizzo and Doja Cat will also face off for Favorite Female Pop Artist.

The announcement caps off a monumental year for both Tems and J.I.D. The Dreamville rapper is hot off the release of his highly-anticipated album The Forever Story, and Tems contributed a haunting cover of Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry” for the forthcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever movie soundtrack.
