One direction locked in for ama performance
November is shaping up to be One Direction month. The fivesome confirmed to MTV News that they will perform at the American Music Awards.
The performance will mark the first time the guys have taken the stage at the big show, which goes live on ABC from Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre on November 24 at 8 p.m. It comes just one day before they will drop their new album, Midnight Memories, on November 25.
Other confirmed performers include Miley Cyrus and country act Florida Georgia Line.
While Macklemore & Ryan Lewis lead the nominees, the 1D guys are up for two awards at the big show. Their nods include Favorite Band, Duo or Group – Pop/Rock (against Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Imagine Dragons) and Favorite Album – Pop/Rock (for 2012’s Take Me Home against Taylor Swift’s Red as well as Justin Timberlake‘s The 20/20 Experience).
The same day the AMAs news was announced, their Directioners were celebrating the anniversary of the release of their second single off their massive 2012 album Take Me Home, “Little Things.” Their enthusiasm for the Ed Sheeran-penned slow jam hasn’t wavered in the last year.
Thanks everyone – love the Trend! Has it really been a year?! 1DHQ x #1YearOfLittleThings
