ABC and Dick Clark Productions announced that the 2020 American Music Awards will air on November 22.

It’s still unclear what format or if an audience will be present for the event, but the show will feature marquee performances while celebrating top music artists across genres.

The genres include Pop/Rock, Alternative Rock, Country, Rap/Hip-Hop, Soul/R&B, Adult Contemporary, Contemporary Inspirational, Latin, EDM, and Soundtrack. They also give out awards for New Artist of the Year, Collaboration of the Year, Video of the Year, Favorite Song, and Artist of the Year.

The nominees are set to be announced in October and they’ll be based on key metrics including album and digital song sales, radio airplay, streaming, social activity, and touring.

The 2019 American Music Awards honored Taylor Swift as the artist of the decade, and the big winners of the night were Billie Eilish for the best new artist, BTS for the best tour of the year, and Khalid for the favorite male artist. Swift also went home with five awards including favorite album pop/rock for Lover and artist of the year.

Swift has surpassed Michael Jackson with 24 AMAs—Jackson comes in second place with 23, and Alabama is in third with 22.
