"I'm so excited to host the 2016 AMAs with Jay Pharoah," Hadid, 21, said. "Jay is known for his spot-on impressions so I can't wait to take the stage with him to show my goofy side and celebrate this year's nominees!"

"Can't wait to host the AMAs with the beautiful Gigi Hadid (so much innocence in her eyes) and being in the building with some of my industry friends, who I've probably impersonated at some point I'm sure,” Pharoah, 28, added.

Hadid, who hosted the iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards in June, and Pharoah, formerly of Saturday Night Live, join previously announced performers James Bay, Fifth Harmony, Lady Gaga, Green Day, John Legend, Bruno Mars, Shawn Mendes, Twenty One Pilots, The Weeknd, The Chainsmokers, Halsey, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj.
