Kelly Clarkson and Demi Lovato are set to take the stage at the American Music Awards later this month.

Clarkson will perform a new single off her just-released album, Meaning of Life, which marks her eighth top 10 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as well as a second, fan-favorite, surprise track.

Clarkson, a four-time American Music Award winner, last performed at the AMAs in 2012 with a medley of her hits "Miss Independent," "Since U Been Gone," "Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)" and "Catch My Breath."

Lovato will performer her single "Sorry Not Sorry," off her latest album, Tell Me You Love Me, which hit No. 1 on the iTunes album chart in the U.S. and 37 other countries. The single became Lovato's highest-charting single ever on the Billboard Hot 100 and has logged more than 350 million global streams.

Lovato last performed at the AMAs in 2015, where she sang her track "Confident" and also joined Alanis Morissette for a rendition of the latter's iconic hit "You Oughta Know."

The fan-voted awards show will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday, Nov. 19, on ABC. Dick Clark Productions is producing the show, now in its 45th year.

As previously announced, Diana Ross will take the stage for a rare performance and will be honored with the American Music Award for Lifetime Achievement. Christina Aguilera will pay tribute to Whitney Houston and music from The Bodyguard with a performance in honor of the film’s 25th anniversary. Other previously announced performers include BTS and Selena Gomez.  

Nominations for the AMAs were announced last month. Bruno Mars leads with eight, followed by The Chainsmokers, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Ed Sheeran and The Weeknd with five nominations apiece.
