John Legend, Shawn Mendes, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj are all set to perform at the 2016 American Music Awards.

Dick Clark Productions and ABC announced Thursday that Grande and Minaj are singing their hit tune “Side to Side.”

This marks the ladies second performance together on the AMA stage. In 2014, Grande and Minaj joined Jessie J for their song “Bang, Bang.” Meanwhile, this will be Legend’s first-ever AMA performance.

The AMAs also revealed on Facebook Live Thursday that The Weeknd is joining the show’s star-studded list of performers.

“Go hard or go home. Getting tatted LIVE on Facebook to reveal another #AMAs performer! And it’s… The Weeknd!” the American Music Awards wrote along with a video of one of the singer’s super-fans getting a tattoo of his XO logo.

The artists join previously announced performers Bruno Mars, who will open the show, along with James Bay, Fifth Harmony, Green Day, Twenty One Pilots, and a duet from The Chainsmokers and Halsey.

Lady Gaga, will also be bringing her fifth solo album, Joanne, to the AMA stage. Sting, who receives the American Music Award of Merit this year, is set to perform as well.

The American Music Awards will air live on Sunday, Nov. 20 at 8 p.m ET on ABC.
