Dick Clark Productions has announced that Florida Georgia Line and One Direction will each make their debut performance on the 2013 American Music Awards which will broadcast live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24th on ABC.
“Florida Georgia Line and One Direction have made an incredible impact over the past three years,” said Larry Klein, longtime producer of the American Music Awards. “We are thrilled to have them make their AMA debut performances this year.”
Florida Georgia Line is nominated for four American Music Awards this year including New Artist of the Year Presented by Kohls, and One Direction is nominated for two American Music Awards including Favorite Album and Favorite Band Duo or Group in the Pop/Rock category.
The “American Music Awards” are voted on by the fans. For the seventh year in a row, winners will be determined by online voting. Fans can vote at the Coca-Cola AMA voting site AMAvote.com. In addition, for the first time in AMAs History, fans will also be able to vote for their favorite artists via Twitter.
Comprised of Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Georgia) and Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, Florida), Florida Georgia Line has skyrocketed since releasing consecutive, multi-week #1 smashes in the US and Canada with the GOLD-certified “Round Here,” PLATINUM-certified “Get Your Shine On” and 6X PLATINUM “Cruise.” FGL is the only artist in history to join Brooks & Dunn in having their first three singles hit #1 for multiple weeks each and their new emotionally-fueled single, “Stay,” is poised to follow in the success. On 11/25, FGL will release HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES…THIS IS HOW WE ROLL, a deluxe version of their chart-topping, PLATINUM-certified debut on Republic Nashville. Garnering buzz among fans, media and several Superstars across genres – including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Ed Sheeran – the hot newcomers have taken home ACM and CMT Music Awards and garnered multiple TEEN CHOICE nominations. They are currently nominated for their first-ever AMA and CMA Awards, scoring spots in four categories at each. FGL is currently on their first headline run, HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES TOUR 2013, breaking venue sales records nationwide with sold-out shows on all stops to date.
One Direction- Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson formed in 2010 and have since amassed a loyal fan base and fame all across the globe. With two albums to date, UP ALL NIGHT and TAKE ME HOME, they have impressively sold over 32 million records worldwide and have achieved a total of 61 number ones. It’s been an incredible year for One Direction as they took home a BRIT Award, 3 Billboard Music Awards, 6 Teen Choice Awards and received a moonman for Best Song Of The Summer at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. This Summer, One Direction made their movie debut with their massive hit 3D concert movie and documentary One Direction: This Is Us. The film has been a phenomenal success, topping the UK and US box offices and grossing an incredible $67 Million worldwide. The band will release their third studio album MIDNIGHT MEMORIES on November 25th which includes the worldwide smash hit “Best Song Ever” and the upcoming single “Story Of My Life.”
