Sunday, November 24 at 8 PM ET/PT on ABC
dick clark productions has announced A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera will perform “Say Something,” and Ariana Grande will also perform at the “2013 American Music Awards.” The show will broadcast live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on ABC.

The “2013 American Music Awards” is produced by dick clark productions. Allen Shapiro and Michael Mahan are Executive Producers and Larry Klein is Producer.
One of the most accomplished performers of the last decade, she has sold more than 43 million albums worldwide, achieved four #1 singles on the Billboard hot 100 chart, and has won five Grammy Awards, as well as three top five albums in the United States. She has collaborated with other legendary artists including Herbie Hancock, Andrea Bocelli, Tony Bennett, Elton John and The Rolling Stones. Aguilera was also the only artist under 30 to make Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of 100 greatest singers of all time and was named one of Time Magazine’s Most Influential People in 2013.
A Great Big World – This New York-based singer-songwriting duo, featuring Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino, has made quite an impact with their breakout hit “Say Something,” which recently climbed to the #1 spot on iTunes and Billboard’s Digital Songs Chart after an emotional performance of the song with Christina Aguilera on “The Voice.” In January 2013, their viral hit “This Is the New Year,” solidified them as an indie pop presence with staggering YouTube views and was covered by the cast of “Glee.” The duo originally used support from fans to craft a six-song EP funded entirely on Kickstarter, which led them to sign with Black Magnetic/Epic Records. Known for their positive, piano-driven pop songs and heartwarming lyrics, A Great Big World’s debut full-length album, “Is There Anybody Out There?,” is available for pre-order now and features both the original and Christina Aguilera versions of “Say Something.”
ARIANA GRANDE landed at the top with her first full-length album for Republic Records, “Yours Truly.” It debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, Billboard Digital Albums Chart, and iTunes Overall Albums Chart. Moreover, it yielded the game-changing pop smash “The Way” featuring Mac Miller. One of 2013’s defining songs, the single went double-platinum, hit the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and reached #1 on the iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart. GRANDE‘s magnetic charm, impressive voice, and astounding presence have enchanted millions of fans worldwide. However, “Yours Truly” merely starts her journey to legendary.
Preceding the ABC broadcast for the 5th consecutive year will be the “Coca-Cola Red Carpet LIVE! @ The 2013 AMAs” pre-show hosted by Lance Bass, Jordin Sparks, Zendaya, Jenna Ushkowitz, Rosie Pierri, Colbie Caillat, Ted Stryker, Jonathan Cheban, Aimee Song, Bonnie McKee and Jake Owen, who is this year’s Dodge Brand correspondent.

Christina Aguilera has been singing the national anthem since she was seven-years-old but unfortunately, at the Super Bowl, she must have spaced out…
Aguilera released the following statement after the performance:
I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.

THREE COUPLES REMAIN…BUT ONE STAR WILL OUTSHINE THE REST, ON THE FINAL TWO NIGHTS OF ABC’S “DANCING WITH THE STARS”
Recording Superstar Christina Aguilera Will Perform
Eleven Couples from This Season Will Return to the Ballroom to Dance
“Episode 1110/1110A – After ten weeks of electrifying performances and shocking outcomes, Jennifer Grey & Derek Hough, Kyle Massey & Lacey Schwimmer and Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas have earned the right for a chance to be crowned champions of “Dancing with the Stars.” Eleven of this season’s couples will also return to the ballroom to dance one more time. The three finalists will have their last opportunity to impress the judges and viewers on two final nights of competition, MONDAY, NOV. 22 (8:00-9:11 p.m., ET), and concluding on the Season Finale, TUESDAY, NOV. 23 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
In the final performance show on MONDAY, NOV. 22 (8:00-9:11 p.m., ET), each of the couples will compete in two dances. In an effort to show their improvement over the course of the season, all three couples will dance for redemption by re-choreographing and doing a previously performed dance chosen by the judges with new music for a better score. Each couple will also perform the unpredictable and always entertaining no rules Freestyle dance.
In the two-hour Season Finale on TUESDAY, NOV. 23 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET), the thrill of the competition will continue as the three finalists perform their personal favorite ballroom dance of the season and will be ranked by the judges. In the final element of the competition on Tuesday, each of the couples will do an “Instant Dance” — in which they will have to master the Cha Cha Cha to music they’ve been given for the first time after the show’s broadcast has begun.
Also on Tuesday’s spectacular Season Finale, multi-platinum, award-winning recording star Christina Aguilera will perform two songs. Aguilera’s performance will feature a number from her show-stopping new film, “Burlesque,” which will be released by Screen Gems, a division of Sony Pictures, on November 24. The soundtrack to “Burlesque” will be released on November 22nd on RCA Records and features numerous original songs co-written and performed by Aguilera, as well as production by Tricky Stewart and Linda Perry and songwriting by Claude Kelly, Tricky Stewart and Sia. “Burlesque” also includes remakes/covers of classic songs such as Etta James’ “Something’s Got a Hold on Me” and “Tough Lover” and Mae West’s “A Guy What Takes His Time.” Aguilera will also perform her breathtaking Grammy Award-winning single, “Beautiful.”
Aguilera has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, achieved four #1 singles on the Billboard hot 100 chart and has won five Grammy Awards, as well as three top five albums in the United States. She has collaborated with other legendary artists including Herbie Hancock, Andrea Bocelli, Tony Bennett, Elton John and The Rolling Stones. This month she will appear in her first feature film, “Burlesque,” opposite Cher and Stanley Tucci. Earlier this year, she launched her new album, “Bionic,” which featured collaborations from artists such as Sia, Le Tigre and Ladytron, as well as producers Tricky Stewart and Hill/Switch.
All of the frenzy and anticipation will lead up to the moment we’ve all been waiting for when the couples’ scores from the judges will be combined with the audience votes to determine who among the three finalists will win reign as champion of “Dancing with the Stars” and take home the coveted mirror ball trophy.
Hosted by Tom Bergeron (“America’s Funniest Home Videos”) and Brooke Burke (“Dancing with the Stars” Season 7 champion), the celebrities perform choreographed dance routines which will be judged by renowned Ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.
Viewers may cast their votes for their favorite teams via phone on Monday night during and up to 30 minutes after the “Dancing with the Stars” performance shows. Wireless customers with AT&T may also text message their votes by texting the word “VOTE” to the number that corresponds to the team they want to support (message and data rates may apply).

And: Cynthia McFadden Interviews Cher About Her New Film, “Burlesque,” Her Dating Life, Career and Motherhood
What started as a classic teenage rivalry – two girls locked in a tug of war over the same boy -quickly escalated into internet insults, and finally a deadly street side showdown. Growing up in the same Florida suburb, teenagers Sarah Ludeman and Rachel Wade had many things in common, including the same boyfriend, Joshua Camacho. The girls learned of each other through Myspace and then used the web as a place to taunt and bait each other with words and photos. As Joshua continued to date both of them, the animosity between Sarah and Rachel increased, creating a volatile mix of teenage passion and angst. It would all come to a head on a fateful night in April 2009, when words would turn into blows and lives would be forever changed. Ashleigh Banfield reports on “20/20,” FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
And: Cynthia McFadden sits down with megastar Cher for a rare, in-depth interview. The star discusses her new movie, “Burlesque,” her co-star, Christina Aguilera, dating, whether there’s a man in her life, and whether reports that she’s worth more than $600 million dollars are true. She also gives her first extended interview about her son, Chaz. Formerly Chastity, Chaz underwent gender reassignment surgery.
“20/20″ is anchored by Elizabeth Vargas and Chris Cuomo. David Sloan is executive producer.
