This will mark the seventh consecutive year Frazier has hosted. Knight is hosting for the third time.

Frazier co-hosts ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT with Nancy O’Dell. The two-time Emmy Award-winning entertainment news program is in its 37th season.

Prior to first joining ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT in 2004, he served as host of “SportsCenter,” “NBA Shoot Around” and “NBA Fastbreak.” Also, he served as a sideline reporter for the “NFL on Fox” telecasts.

Knight is a former classical ballerina and Radio City Rockette. A two-time Emmy Award nominee, Knight is currently a correspondent for ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT. Additionally, she co-hosts The LadyGang podcast, which has been featured on Entertainment Weekly’s “Must List” and has seen over 15 million downloads in 2017. She was a guest advisor on “Project Runway,” and has appeared on THE TALK, “Huffington Post Live,” “Weekend Express” and “Dr. Drew.” Also, she has been a guest moderator for various panels for Vanity Fair and a judge for the 2016 Miss USA pageant.

Inspired by Kerry Hammond’s “Search and Rescue Woods” Creepypasta tale, CHANNEL ZERO: BUTCHER’S BLOCK tells the story of a young woman named Alice (Olivia Luccardi, “It Follows”) who moves to a new city and learns about a series of disappearances that may be connected to a baffling rumor about mysterious staircases in the city’s worst neighborhoods.

Brandon Scott (“Wreck-It Ralph”) as Officer Luke Vanczyk, a young but already jaded cop, living in the shadow of his father, the Chief of Police. Luke’s world-weary exterior hides a fierce commitment to justice, and a deep love for his troubled community.

MULTIPLATINUM POP SUPERSTAR SELENA GOMEZ TO PERFORM AT THE ‘2017 AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS®’

October 26, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

GOMEZ TO PERFORM WORLD TV PREMIERE OF BRAND-NEW SINGLE ‘WOLVES’

WORLD’S LARGEST FAN-VOTED AWARDS SHOW TO
CELEBRATE 45 YEARS OF GIVING FANS THE VERY BEST IN MUSIC

The Live Broadcast Will Air
Sunday, November 19, at 8:00 p.m. EST on ABC

dick clark productions and ABC announced today that multiplatinum singer and actress, Selena Gomez, will perform her brand-new single at the “2017 American Music Awards.” The influential and inspiring pop superstar, who continues to redefine her role as an artist, is a fan favorite at the American Music Awards, having taken home the award for Favorite Female Artist – Pop/Rock in 2016, as well as providing show-stopping performances of her powerful track “Same Old Love” in 2015 and her passionate song “The Heart Wants What It Wants” in 2014. A truly gifted singer, Gomez makes her return to the AMA stage with the world television premiere of her brand-new single “Wolves.” The “2017 American Music Awards,” the world’s largest fan-voted awards show where music enthusiasts watch their favorite artists and pop culture icons come together to honor idols, newcomers and record-breakers in the contemporary music scene, will celebrate 45 years of music live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Nov. 19, at 8:00 p.m. EST on ABC.

Selena Gomez made her mark in entertainment by conquering film, music and television at an early age. On the big screen, she began making the transition from young actress to adulthood with such films as the much-talked-about Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers.” The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival to critical acclaim while Gomez’s performance was singled out as a “breakout.” She appeared in the Academy Award®-nominated film “The Big Short” opposite Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling, as well as “Fundamentals of Caring” alongside Paul Rudd. The latter film premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and Gomez was named by Vulture.com as one of “The 20 Best Performances of Sundance 2016.” Other credits include “Rudderless,” “Neighbors 2” and the James Franco-directed “Indubious Battle.” She is currently filming the untitled Woody Allen feature opposite Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning and Jude Law.

As a recording artist, Selena has sold over 50 million tracks worldwide. She recently released two new singles “Bad Liar” and “Fetish,” which garnered enthusiastic reviews. Entertainment Weekly wrote Gomez is making “the most unexpected pop music of the year,” while Rolling Stoneproclaimed the first single as “smart and streamlined.” In 2015, Gomez released her critically acclaimed album, “Revival.” The first three singles off the album “Good For You,” “Same Old Love” and “Hands to Myself” went to No. 1 on the U.S. Top 40 chart. Gomez joins an elite group and becomes only the sixth female artist to have at least three songs from one album reach the No. 1 position since the chart launched in 1992. Gomez has added executive producer to her impressive list of credits serving as an executive producer of the hit Netflix original series “13 Reasons Why.”

Giving back has always been an important element in her life. She was named the youngest Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF at 18 years old and has worked tirelessly to support the organization ever since. Gomez has traveled to Ghana, Chile and Nepal as an advocate for some of the world’s most vulnerable children with UNICEF. Selena was honored for her continued support at Variety’s first-ever Unite4: Humanity event with the Young Humanitarian Award alongside Bill Clinton. She has hosted “We Day” in Vancouver, Chicago and Los Angeles for We The Children, an organization that empowers young people to achieve their fullest potential as agents of change by being active local and global citizens.

It was previously announced that music legend, Diana Ross, will take the stage at the “2017 American Music Awards” for a rare performance, where she will also be honored with the “American Music Award for Lifetime Achievement” in recognition of her remarkable career and her outstanding artistic contributions to the entertainment industry and popular culture.

Nominations for the “2017 American Music Awards” were announced earlier this month. Bruno Mars leads with eight nominations, including Artist of the Year, Video of the Year and Favorite Male Artist – Pop/Rock. The Chainsmokers, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Ed Sheeran and The Weeknd tied with five nominations each; while Justin Bieber, Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi received four nominations each.
