Music stars love to make a fashion statement, so the red carpet at the 44th annual American Music Awards should be filled with daring outfits. The pre-show won’t be on TV, though. The official “Coca-Cola Red Carpet LIVE! @ The 2016 AMAs” will only be live-streamed, so make sure your computer or mobile device is ready.
The red carpet will start 6 p.m. EST/3 p.m. PST Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, but fans can live-stream the event at home on the AMAs Facebook page or the official website. It’ll last for about two hours, until just before the actual awards ceremony stars on ABC.
The AMAs red carpet will have several hosts: “Dating Naked” host Rosci Diaz, pop culture expert AJ Gibson, Miss America 2015 Kira Kazantsev, fashion expert George Kotsiopoulos, actress Bailee Madison, style expert Jeannie Mai, actress/singer Laura Marano and singer/songwriter Roshon Fegan.
The event won’t just be about fashion. There will be some performances at the American Music Awards pre-show too. Spencer Ludwig, a trumpet playing singer/songwriter, will show off his skills. Singer/songwriter Emeli Sandé will also perform one of her hits on the red carpet.
Those who prefer watching the red carpet on TV can watch “Live from the Red Carpet” on E!. Their show will start at 6 p.m. EST and last until 8 p.m. EST.
The AMAs red carpet will have some serious fashion statements. After all, model Gigi Hadid is hosting along with comedian Jay Pharoah. They’ll be joined at the show by many famous faces. Presenters include Ansel Elgort, Idina Menzel, Janelle Monae, Olivia Munn, Rachel Platten, Ryan Seacrest, Miss America 2017 Savvy Shields, Nina Dobrev, Hailee Steinfeld, Chrissy Teigen, Bella Thorne, Zoe Saldana, Teyana Taylor, Julianne Hough, Karlie Kloss, and Ciara.
Expect performers to walk the red carpet too. Justin Bieber, Fifth Harmony, Lady Gaga, Green Day, John Legend, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, The Weeknd, The Chainsmokers and Halsey are just some of the artists taking the stage at the ceremony.
The 2016 American Music Awards will air live at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
