PHILIPPINES – Smart Communications, through its new GigaPlay App, is bringing the 2021 American Music Awards (AMAs) exclusively to its subscribers, live on November 22 at 9am PHT. Hosted by multi-awarded rapper Cardi B, the 2021 AMAs is set to excite the hearts of music fans everywhere when it brings together the biggest artists at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. In this time of pandemic, Smart makes the biggest acts available to Filipinos through amazing live streaming technology.
Headlining the event is Korean supergroup and Smart endorser BTS (방탄소년단), who will be doing two separate performances during the show. First is the remix of their hit song “Butter” live for the first time together with fellow AMAs winner and nominee Megan Thee Stallion and a performance of their recent chart-topping collaboration with Coldplay, “My Universe.” The six-time AMA-winning group is also nominated for three major awards this year, including Artist of the Year—a first for any Asian act.
The 2021 AMAs will also feature live performances from the hottest artists today, including Bad Bunny, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Kane Brown, New Edition, New Kids on the Block, Jennifer Lopez and part-Filipina singer Olivia Rodrigo, who marks her debut on the AMAs stage.
Rodrigo topped this year’s nominations with a total of seven nods including Artist of the Year while her hit single Driver’s License is up for trending song, music video, and pop song nominations. The Weeknd, on the other hand, earned six AMA nods in close second. For group acts, Silk Sonic is up for three nods including best duo or group, video, and soul song/R&B.
