Luke Bryan, Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town, Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor will deliver “all-star” duets at the 2015 American Music Awards, organizers announced on Tuesday.

Bryan, a triple winner of the favorite male artist, country category, will perform the world premiere of “Home Alone Tonight” featuring Fairchild, in what will be her first time on the AMAs stage without her bandmates.

Also on the night, Trainor will team up with Puth to perform his single “Marvin Gaye,” while Trainor will treat the AMAs audience to a rendition of her platinum-certified song “Like I’m Gonna Lose You,” lifted from her hit debut album Title.

They join a lineup of previously announced star-performers that includes 5 Seconds of Summer, Selena Gomez, Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato, One Direction, Carrie Underwood and Walk The Moon.

ABC will air the AMAs live from Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater on Nov. 22, with Jennifer Lopez performing and hosting for the first time.

Taylor Swift is the most nominated artist at this year's awards with six, though The Weeknd, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Nicki Minaj and Trainor aren’t far 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.

Additionally, the AMAs and Twitter are launching custom Twitter emojis for all performers. To activate the emojis for the newly announced artists, tweet the hashtags #LukeKarenAMAs (for Bryan and Fairchild) and #MeghanCharlieAMAs (for Trainor and Puth).

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.
