Usher And Keys Prepare For Debut Live Gig
Janet Jackson, who incurred a $550,000 (GBP300,000) fine for American television network CBS for her Super Bowl "wardrobe malfunction", has been trusted to welcome the pair onto the stage at Las Vegas's Shrine Auditorium.
Ceremony producer DICK CLARK says, "One of the great things about the AMAs is the ability to bring performances to the air that are 'of the moment', and what could be more timely than the first live TV performance of the number one song in America?
"I wish I could leave the producers' table and get a seat out front for this one. It will surely be one of the highlights of the evening."
