Justin Bieber Will Perform Medley Of Hits In Finale At 2015 AMAs

Justin Bieber has been announced as a performer at the upcoming American Music Awards 2015 (AMAs).

Bieber joins the line-up for the Jennifer-Lopez ceremony, which already features performers including Ariana Grande, 5 Seconds of Summer, Gwen Stefani, The Weeknd, One Direction, Pentatonix with a full symphony orchestra, and lots more.

In Wednesday’s Twitter unveiling, the AMAs revealed Bieber will be performing a medley of hits during the finale. Based on his recent shows, this is likely to include recent hits such as “Where Are U Now?,” “What Do You Mean?” and “Sorry.”

Like other performers, the heartthrob was given his own emoji to mark the announcement. Other promo was also rolled out.

A seven times American Music Awards winner, Bieber’s appearance at the music event comes amid his non-stop promotional tour in support of his acclaimed new album Purpose, which was officially released on November 13.

In addition to a slew of radio and magazine interviews, the singer was a featured guest during a week-long stint on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Biebs performed three shows called “An Evening with Justin Bieber” at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on the day his album dropped.

Bieber also performed on the The Tonight Show, the Today Show, and a brand new “Carpool Karaoke” video with The Late Late Show host James Corden has just arrived online.

Billboard and other music trades are predicting Purpose will reign definitively over One Direction’s Made in the A.M. on the Billboard 200 and Top Album Sales charts for the week ending November 19.

According to Hits Daily Double, Purpose has now extended its lead over Made in the A.M. and will claim the No. 1 spot, with a U.S. sales total of between 470,000-490,000, which surpasses Bieber’s previous first week best of 374,000 for 2012’s Believe.

In comparison, One Direction’s Made in the A.M. is set to debut with a total of between 410,000-430,000 U.S. copies in its first week after release.

Both sets of figures will be boosted by Track Equivalent Albums and Streaming Equivalent Albums. Here, Purpose’s lead over Made in the A.M. is even greater. Hits expects Bieber’s LP to score an opening week consumption total of between 560,000-580,000 units.

If so, Bieber’s Purpose would not only secure the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart — which factors in downloads and streams with pure sales — it would set the record as 2015’s best-selling album first week debut. To date, Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late holds the record with 535,000 units.

Meanwhile, the estimate for One Direction’s Made in the A.M., after adding track and stream equivalents, is between between 460,000-480,000 in total consumption units.

The 2015 American Music Awards airs Sunday, November 22, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Will be you be tuning in to see Justin Bieber and the rest?
