Selena Gomez to Perform New Music at the American Music Awards

Selena Gomezis ready to return to the stage…

The 27-year-old Mexican American singer/actress is set to perform at the 2019 American Music Awards for the television premiere of her new music, according to dick clark productions and ABC.

Selena Gomez

The performance marks Gomez’s first live television gig in two years, but she’s no stranger to the AMAstage. She previously performed in 2014, 2015 and in 2017.

The announcement comes following the release of Gomez’s two singles, “Lose You To Love Me” and “Look At Her Now.” 

Her upcoming album will follow Gomez’s 2016 record, Revival.

The American Music Awards, which will air live from the Microsoft Theaterin Los Angeles on November 24 at 8:00 pm ET on ABC.

Mariah Carey Returning to Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest

Mariah Carey is getting a second chance…

The 47-year-old half-Venezuelan American singer will return to the scene of her infamous major malfunction in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, agreeing to another performance this year for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest.

Mariah Carey 

Carey was the victim of an alleged technical malfunction when she appeared on the globally televised program in 2016-17, though her bizarre off-camera demeanor made others question whether sound was the issue. Carey wound up walking around the stage without singing in what many described as a meltdown.

A representative for Carey blamed Dick Clark Productions. saying “production set her up to fail”; DCP called that claim “absurd.”

This year, Carey will take another stab at performing in the New Year’s Eve celebration, taking the stage at 11:45 p.m.

Carey recently changed managers, and the switch to Roc Nation might have prompted the return.

Other performers scheduled to appear include Camila Cabello, Nick Jonas and Sugarland. Britney Spears will appear for a remote cameo from Las Vegas.
