They’ll perform at Sunday’s show in Los Angeles

Alicia Keys, Celine Dion and Lenny Kravitz are all set to debut new material at the American Music Awards this Sunday (November 18).

Beyonce, Avril Lavigne, Maroon 5, Duran Duran and Rihanna are also among the acts slated to perform at the event which will take place at the brand new Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

Also scheduled to make appearances at the event are Akon, Gene Simmons, Slash, Scott Weiland, Snoop Dogg and Usher, as well as many more.

Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and Linkin Park lead the nominations with three nods each.

The awards will go ahead without any current event comments by host Jimmy Kimmel, as the script was written prior to the ongoing Writers Guild strike.
