The awards show airs Nov. 20 on ABC.

Maroon 5 will be joined by Kendrick Lamar to perform their single "Don’t Wanna Know" during the T-Mobile Finale at the 2016 American Music Awards.

This will be Maroon 5’s fourth time performing at the American Music Awards and Lamar's second AMA performance. Lamar is also a two-time nominee.

They join previously announced performers including James Bay, Fifth Harmony, Lady Gaga, Green Day, John Legend, Bruno Mars, Shawn Mendes, Twenty One Pilots, The Weeknd, special duets from The Chainsmokers and Halsey, and Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, and the American Music Award of Merit honoree and performer Sting.

Gigi Hadid and Jay Pharoah are set to co-host the fan-voted awards show, which will broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles at 8 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 20, on ABC.

The nominations for the fan-voted awards show, produced by Dick Clark Productions, were revealed last month. Drake leads with a record 13 noms, while Rihanna has seven and Adele and Justin Bieber each have five.

The 2016 American Music Awards show is executive produced by Allen Shapiro and Mike Mahan, with Larry Klein, Barry Adelman and Mark Bracco serving as producers.
