AceShowbiz - The list of performers for the 2017 American Music Awards keeps growing. ABC and Dick Clark Production have announced on Twitter that Lady GaGa, Shawn Mendes and Nick Jonas would grace the stage at the event, which will be held on November 19.
GaGa will belt out "The Cure", which is dedicated to her late friend Sonja Durjan who died from cancer in May, for the first time on TV at the event. However, since the songstress is currently hitting the road for her "Joanne" world tour, she will perform the track live from her Washington, D.C. stop. Meanwhile, Jonas will perform a rendition of "Find You", and Mendes will deliver a performance of "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back".
Both Jonas and Mendes took to Twitter to express their excitement about their upcoming performance at the event. Jonas stated that the event is one of his favorite shows. "One of my favorite shows to perform on. So happy to be back this year. See you Sunday," he wrote. Meanwhile, Mendes simply tweeted, "Performing at the @AMAs this sunday! X."
