2020 American Music Awards to Air on ABC on Nov. 22

The 2020 American Music Awards, the world’s largest fan-voted awards show, will air on ABC on Nov. 22 at 7 p.m. CT.

The show honors artists in multiple musical genres, including country, pop, alternative, rap and more. Nominations and performers will be announced in the coming weeks.

Nominations are based on key fan interactions, including album and digital song sales, radio airplay, streaming, social activity and touring. The measurements are tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music/MRC Data and Next Big Sound. The American Music Awards winners are voted entirely by fans.

Thomas Rhett and Shania Twain performed at last year’s show, which saw Carrie Underwood (Favorite Female Artist-Country and Favorite Album-County) and Dan + Shay (Favorite Duo/Group-Country and Favorite Song-Country) take home two awards apiece, while Kane Brown (Favorite Male Artist-Country) and Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus (Favorite Song-Rap/Hip-Hop) scored one trophy each.
