Get ready to celebrate and cheer on your favorite musicians, because it’s time to learn how to live stream the 2020 AMAs. The American Music Awards are nearly here, and that means appearances from some top names in tunes including BTS, Billie Eilish, and Dua Lipa. You don’t need a ticket to catch any of the performances, but if you’re wondering how to watch the night, here’s what you need to know.
The 2020 American Music Awards air on Sunday, November 22, beginning at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The show will air live on ABC, and Taraji P. Henson will be serving as host. Airing from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, the show will hand out a number of fan-voted awards, and include performances from Justin Bieber, Megan Thee Stallion, BTS, and Shawn Mendes.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, things might look a little different this year, and as Deadline reports, many of those involved with the production were required to undergo testing. Additionally, some performances will be pre-taped, Henson shared in an interview. She also noted that because of the pandemic, some artists had chosen not to travel. Never fear, though, as she promised “a big in-house show” for viewers at home to enjoy.
Fans will have to stay tuned to see whether any of their favorites, including Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, or Doja Cat walk away with a win, but it’s already been confirmed that celebs including Cara Delevingne and Laverne Cox will be on hand to announce winners and present performers.
