Taylor Swift will open the 2018 American Music Awards. The 28-year-old singer confirmed the news in an Instagram video Tuesday after announcing the news on Good Morning America.
“I’m opening up the American Music Awards with a performance of ‘I Did Something Bad’,” she captioned the post. “Meredith is not excited, but I am. #AMAs.”
The clip shows Swift lounging with her cat Meredith. “Good morning America, it’s Taylor. I just wanted to say I’m going to be opening up the American Music Awards with a performance,” the star says in the video.
The American Music Awards confirmed the news on its official Twitter account. “@taylorswift13 will OPEN the #AMAs with her first awards show performance in almost 3 YEARS…” the post reads. “…and she’s performing ‘I Did Something Bad.’ ONE WEEK at 8/7c on ABC. #TaylorSwiftAMAs.”
The 2018 American Music Awards will take place October 9th in Los Angeles. Swift is nominated for four awards, including Artist of the Year and Favorite Pop/Rock Album for Reputation.
Cardi B, Mariah Carey, Halsey, Carrie Underwood, Ciara and Missy Elliott are among the other performers. Ciara said in a tweet last week that she has “something really special” planned for her performance with Elliott.
The show will also feature Panic! At The Disco paying tribute to Queen with a performance of the rock band’s iconic hit “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Tracee Ellis Ross will host the show, which will also feature a tribute to late Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin.
