The Live Broadcast Will Air Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 8:00 p.m. EDT, on ABC

Dick clark productions and ABC today announced a red-hot collaboration from multiplatinum-selling artist Ciara and two-time American Music Award winner Missy Elliott, as well as a performance from singer/songwriter and first-time AMA nominee Dua Lipa. Ciara, Missy and Dua join previously announced performers benny blanco with Halsey and Khalid, Cardi B featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin, Mariah Carey, Post Malone featuring Ty Dolla $ign, and Carrie Underwood, as well as a moving tribute to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. Hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross, the "2018 American Music Awards," the world's largest fan-voted awards show, will broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 8:00 p.m. EDT, on ABC.

Set to perform on the American Music Awards stage for the first time since 2005, award-winning artist Ciara will be joined by hip-hop and R&B legend Missy Elliott for two heavy-hitting performances, including Ciara's "Level Up," which debuted on the Billboard Hot 100, ranked in the Top 10 on the Digital Song Sales chart, and became the No. 1-trending topic on YouTube after spawning the Level Up Challenge. Additionally, Ciara will perform "Dose," the new single from her forthcoming studio album. American Music Awards newcomer and New Artist of the Year presented by Capital One(R) Savor(R) Card nominee, Dua Lipa, will take the AMAs performance stage for the first time with two of her hits from the complete edition of her self-titled, debut studio album, including "Electricity," her latest Billboard Hot 100 collaboration. Since its debut, the popular house track has landed spots amongst Billboard's Dance Club Songs, Hot Dance/Electronic Songs and Pop Songs airplay charts.

Ciara is an award-winning singer/songwriter, producer, model and actress. Over her 13-year career, she has sold over 23 million records and 16 million singles worldwide, including chart-topping hits "Goodies," "Ride," "Oh," "1, 2 Step," "Body Party" and "I Bet." Most recently, Ciara has been scorching summer with her new song "Level Up," which has transformed into a defining moment for the culture with the subsequent movement it has incited. Beyond clocking over 80 million views on YouTube, the song spent several weeks at No. 1 on the iTunes Top R&B/Soul Songs Chart and Top 10 on iTunes overall, and attracted Missy Elliott and Fatman Scoop for a high-profile remix which also shot up the iTunes charts. Its high-powered dance initially inspired fans to shoot their own videos with the hashtag #LevelUpChallenge - stirring up a viral buzz that has seen over 2 million posts across social media and launched the video to a No. 1-trending topic on YouTube. Ciara is a devoted wife and mother of two as well as a philanthropist who is dedicated to improving the lives of children and empowering women across the globe.

Missy Elliott is a groundbreaking solo superstar, pioneering producer/songwriter/singer/rapper and cultural icon. The five-time GRAMMY(R) Award winner - with nominations spanning three decades - has achieved unprecedented success, including U.S. sales in excess of 30 million. Missy's six studio albums (including 2001's landmark "Miss E... So Addictive" and 2002's blockbuster "Under Construction") have each been RIAA platinum-certified or better, marking her as the only female rapper to achieve that milestone accomplishment. Missy returned to the scene in November 2015 with her explosive single, "WTF (Where They From)" feat. Pharrell Williams. The track's accompanying video has garnered over 40 million YouTube views and immediately became the No. 1-trending topic on both Twitter and Facebook upon its release. "WTF (Where They From)" feat Pharrell Williams was also featured as the official theme to ESPN's kickoff coverage of the 2015/2016 NBA season. Shortly after, Elliott released fan-favorite single, "Pep Rally," which was featured in Amazon's Super Bowl commercial starring Alec Baldwin, Dan Marino, Jason Schwartzman and Missy herself. In March, Missy teamed up with First Lady Michelle Obama to release the female empowerment anthem, "This is For My Girls." The track supports various ongoing campaigns empowering young women and also features the talents of Kelly Rowland, Janelle Mon�e, Kelly Clarkson and Zendaya. Most recently, Missy unveiled her latest smash, "I'm Better (feat. Lamb)" which is accompanied by an incredible companion video that has garnered over 19 million views since its release. The following half-decade plus has also seen Elliott featured on tracks from artists including Ginuwine, Ciara, K. Michelle, Demi Lovato, The Black Keys, J. Cole, G-Dragon, Fantasia, Monica, Busta Rhymes, Jazmine Sullivan, and of course, Katy Perry, with whom she famously teamed up for 2011's "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) (Remix)." Additionally, Missy lit up 2014 with a series of surprise event appearances, joining Pharrell Williams to open the BET Awards with a "Come Get It Bae/Pass That Dutch" mash-up, reuniting with Da Brat and Lil Kim at the Soul Train Music Awards for their 1997 breakthrough, "Not Tonight (Ladies Night Remix)" - the trio's first live performance together in more than 16 years - and of course her unforgettable performance at 2015's Super Bowl XLIX. Missy joined Katy Perry for the historic happening, wowing 118.5 million viewers - the largest ever audience in Super Bowl history - with a medley of "Get Ur Freak On," "Work It," and "Lose Control." Digital sales skyrocketed in the following days, with both "Get Ur Freak On" and "Work It" returning to the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart more than 10 years after their initial successes. In addition, Elliott has been heard on such recent tracks as Faith Evans' 2014 single, "I Deserve It" (feat, Missy Elliott & Sharaya J), Jack �'s 2015 "Take � There" (feat. Kiesza) (Missy Elliott Remix), and most recently, Janet Jackson's "BURNITUP!" (feat. Missy Elliott).

With the release of her self-titled debut album, London born, Kosovo-raised ?Dua Lipa ?has won over the hearts of fans and press alike. The songs on ?Dua Lipa ?announce the arrival of a new force in pop - irresistible on the dance floor, thoughtful under closer inspection, constantly discovering creative possibilities.
