The AMAs are about three weeks away and they are loading up on performers. The 2016 American Music Awards has added six new artists to their roster including Fifth Harmony, The Chainsmokers, Shakira and Halsey, who will be performing "Closer" with The DJ duo. They will join previously announced acts in Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga and others.

Also included in the new announcement today are Carlos Vives and James Bay.

It will be the first time on the AMAs stage for FH, Halsey, The Chainsmokers, Halsey and Vives.

The Chainsmokers are hoping to redeem themselves after their lackluster performance of "Closer" at the MTV VMAs where they did not sound good and the production was boring for a song with that energy.

Fifth Harmony will be performing "That's My Girl." Shakira and Carlos Vives will be performing together.

Other artists already on the bill include Green Day, Twenty One Pilots and American Music Award of Merit honoree and performer Sting.

Drake leads the total nominations pack with a record setting 13 in total. He will compete for honors such as Artist of the Year, Favorite Male Artist, Favorite Album, Favorite Rap Song and more.

Rihanna is being him with seven nominations, while Adele, and Justin Bieber have five nods each.
