Tonight (November 19) signals the big kick-off of the 2017 American Music Awards!

Airing this evening on ABC at 8 p.m. EST, the world’s hottest music stars will meet at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles for the annual occasion hosted by Black-ish favorite Tracee Ellis Ross, whose legendary mother, Diana Ross, will be presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Hitting the AMAs red carpet tonight is everyone from stage-stormers like P!nk and Kelly Clarkson to Selena Gomez and K-pop heartthrobs BTS, who will have their first televised set in the U.S. tonight, making for a star-studded spectacle, indeed.

We'll be updating our 2017 AMAs red carpet gallery live tonight! Until then, check out this year’s nominees and all you should know about the big event.
