Hosted by superstar performer Cardi B, the 2021 AMAs air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. According to ABC’s press release, “the rapper will take the stage in her hosting debut to usher in music’s hottest night of the year, which will feature showstopping performances and moments representing music’s vibrant community.”

“When I received the invite to host the AMAs, I was so excited,” said Cardi B in a statement. “I’m ready to bring my personality to the AMAs stage! Thank you to Jesse Collins, ABC and MRC for making this happen.”

“We are immensely excited to have the dynamic Cardi B bring her infectious energy to the American Music Awards as a first-time host,” added executive producer Jesse Collins. “She will excite the viewers, push the limits and deliver a show that will be remembered forever!”

“Jesse is a world-class producer who has incredible foresight and experience in the live-event space, and we cannot wait to see how he evolves the AMAs,” said Rob Mills, executive vice president, Unscripted and Alternative Entertainment, Walt Disney Television. “The fans are at the heart of this show, and this year’s show promises high-caliber, unforgettable performances we’ve all come to expect from this spectacular night of music and celebration.”

Performers include Diplo, Maneskin, Mickey Guyton, Tyler, The Creator, Carrie Underwood and Jason Aldean performing their duet “If I Didn’t Love You,” Bad Bunny, Walker Hayes, Zoe Wees, Olivia Rodrigo, Kane Brown, the televised world premiere performance of “Butter” by Megan Thee Stallion and BTS, and two iconic boy bands taking the stage together when New Edition performs with New Kids On The Block.

As far as nominations go, Olivia Rodrigo tops the list with seven, followed by The Weeknd with six, and Bad Bunny, Doja Cat and Giveon with five apiece.
