Jonas will be undertaking his first solo performance at the AMAs, after having taking the stage as part of The Jonas Brothers in 2007 and 2008. Coincidentally, it's also the first time that the "Levels" singer has been nominated for an American Music Award as a solo artist. He and his brothers earned the trophy for Breakthrough Artist also in 2008.
The guest appearance also works in his favor because of the recent premiere of his TV series "Kingdom," which just returned for its second season earlier this month. Jonas also had a multi-episode arc on Fox's "Scream Queens" and will appear in the upcoming feature film "Goat," produced by actor James Franco.
Lovato and Walk the Moon are both performing at the AMAs for the first time. Lovato doesn't have a nomination at this year's ceremony, but her appearance follows the release of her fifth studio album, Confident, on Oct. 16. She and Jonas have already announced plans to co-headline a tour called "Future Now: The Tour," and Jonas also helped Lovato launch her new label Safehouse Records.
The first single from Confident, "Cool for the Summer," was an internationally recognized number-one hit on the iTunes charts in more than 30 countries. Second single and title track "Confident" made its debut during Lovato's recent appearance on NBC's "Saturday Night Live," so the AMA performance will give it even more exposure.
Walk the Moon have nabbed three nominations in their AMA debut - New Artist of the Year, Favorite Duo or Group (Pop/Rock), and Favorite Artist (Alternative Rock). While no one has announced what any of the artists will be performing during the show, it's a safe bet the Ohio band will go with their smash hit "Shut Up and Dance," which was certified Platinum by the RIAA.
The trio of acts are added to a list that already includes One Direction, Selena Gomez, 5 Seconds of Summer, and Carrie Underwood - who was just announced Wednesday as the headliner for "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve," the Dec. 31 special from Dick Clark Productions and ABC, who also produce the AMAs.
The 2015 American Music Awards will take place Sunday, Nov. 22 at the newly renamed Microsoft Theater (formerly Nokia Theater L.A. Live) in Los Angeles. Fans looking to score tickets should visit the event page at AXS.
