This year’s ceremony will gather the hottest young musicians and the top legends in the business for a magical night of great music, stunning fashion and unforgettable awards moments.

Last year’s show was helmed by Cardi B, with BTS, Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion each winning three awards. Previously, crooner “Bodak Yellow” made AMA history as the first female rapper to win the Most Popular Hip-Hop Song award twice.

Cardi, 30, made her first appearance on the AMA stage in 2018 when she performed “I Like It” alongside J Balvin and Bad Bunny.

The late TV producer Dick Clark created the show in 1973, and ABC has been the home of the event since 1974.
