One Direction

Here’s something to scream about: One
Direction has been added to the lineup for the 2015 American Music Awards. 
The superstar pop group will perform
their new song “Perfect” at the AMAs, which take place Nov. 22 at Los Angeles’
Microsoft Theater. 
The fourpiece — Niall Horan, Liam
Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson — should be familiar with format of
the AMAs. The group (then a five piece) won three trophies last year’s ceremony
— artist of the year; favorite duo or group, pop/rock; and favorite album,
pop/rock. And they’ve won a further two trophies from previous editions. This
time, the boy band is nominated in two categories, including artist of the
year.
“Perfect” is from 1D’s
forthcoming fifth studio album Made In The A.M. which is scheduled to drop on
Nov. 13. The arrival of “Perfect” earlier this month prompted 1.6
million Twitter mentions in a single week.
ABC will air the AMAs, which Jennifer
Lopez hosts for the first time. The Latin pop icon will also perform on the
night, along with a confirmed batch of talent which include Aussie pop-punk
outfit 5 Seconds of Summer, pop star Selena Gomez and celebrated country artist
Carrie Underwood.
Taylor Swift is the most nominated
artist at this year’s awards with six, though The Weeknd, Ed Sheeran, Sam
Smith, Nicki Minaj and Meghan Trainor are close behind. AMAs nominees are based
on key fan interactions as reflected in Billboard Magazine and on
Billboard.com, including album and digital singles sales, radio airplay,
streaming, social activity and touring. These measurements are tracked by
Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Entertainment and Next Big
Sound.
Also, the AMAs and Twitter are
launching custom Twitter emojis for all performers. Each performer will have
featured Twitter emojis to celebrate their appearances as they’re announced. To
activate the emojis, tweet any of following hashtags from today through the end
of the show. The hashtag for One Direction is  #AMAs1D, while emojis are
available for 5SOS (#5SOSonAMAs); Gomez (#RevivalAMAs) and Underwood
(#CarrieonAMAs).
The American Music Awards are
produced by Dick Clark Productions, a sister company of The Hollywood Reporter
and Billboard. Allen Shapiro and Mike Mahan are executive producers. Larry
Klein, Barry Adelman and Mark Braccoare producers.
