Gigi Hadid to Host the 2016 American Music Awards
Supermodel Gigi Hadid will co-host the 2016 AMAs with Jay Pharoah
Gigi Hadid has another hosting gig!
This is Hadid’s second time hosting a major awards show — she made her hosting debut at the Much Music Video Music Awards in Toronto earlier this year.
Hadid and Pharoah will run the star-studded broadcast with performances by major artists including John Legend, Shawn Mendes, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, who were added to the already A-list lineup Thursday.
Grande and Minaj will perform together for a live rendition of their collaboration, “Side to Side.”
On Thursday, the AMAs shared on Facebook Live that The Weeknd will join previously announced performers Bruno Mars, who will open the show, and James Bay, Fifth Harmony, Green Day, Twenty One Pilots, The Chainsmokers and Halsey.
The American Music Awards will air live on Sunday, Nov. 20 at 8 p.m ET on ABC.
