The American Music Awards will kick off on Sunday, Nov. 20 and its star-stacked bill is getting heavier as the event draws nearer. Fifth Harmony, Lady Gaga, Twenty One Pilots and Green Day have been previously announced as performers for the event and today (Nov. 10), Maroon 5 announced that Kendrick Lamar would join the band for their AMAs finale.
Maroon 5 previously took the stage at the AMAs to perform "Maps" back in 2014, and tapped Christina Aguilera for their collaboration "Moves Like Jagger" in 2011. Lamar will join the band at this year's ceremony to perform his verse from their newest single, "Don't Wanna Know", which currently rests at No. 9 on the Hot 100.
