At the 2015 American Music Awards in Los Angeles, a troup of musicians/entertainers including Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, 5 Seconds of Summer, Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas, One Direction, Demi Lovato, and Carrie Underwood are scheduled to perform. Host Jennifer Lopez will introduce the artists and winners throughout the three-hour broadcast show. Highlights of the evening will include duets by country stars Luke Bryan and Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town, and pop stars Meghan Trainor and Charlie Puth.
Charlie Puth is the 23-year-old Jersey boy who first became famous on YouTube. He got major street cred when he wrote and sang on the Wiz Khalifa song “See You Again” which was featured on the Furious 7 soundtrack. His 2015 debut single “Marvin Gaye” featuring Meghan Trainor is topping the charts around the world and now making top 25 lists in the United States. Unlike Trainor, Puth chose to attend college to study music production and engineering. In 2013, he graduated from the Berklee College of Music, where he received a full scholarship. Trainor was also offered a free scholarship to Berklee but she declined and released her hit song, “All About That Bass” instead. The 43rd Annual American Music Awards will be broadcast on November 22 at 8pm on ABC.
