The news comes one week before this year's slate of nominees is set to be announced live from YouTube Space L.A. on Sept. 12, at an event lead by musicians Kane Brown, Ella Mai, Normani Kordei and Bebe Rexha.
It was also announced earlier this year that the AMAs have moved to a new night and will be airing live on Tuesday, Oct. 9. The show had traditionally aired in the past on a Sunday and in November.
This year's awards show will feature a number of performances from some of the most exciting names in the music industry.
The 2017 AMAs also saw a few of the most amazing live performances in recent memory, including a death-defying stunt by Pink, who sang while hanging sideways and delivering feats of acrobatic prowess on the side of the 34-floor JW Marriott hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
