One of the hottest acts in music right now, not only did Charli XCX announce the 2014 American Music Awards nominees this morning, but she also announced that she'll be performing LIVE during the show SUNDAY NOV 23 8|7c on ABC. Charli is not only a nominee herself, she's also the first of what's sure to be a long and impressive list of live performers—don't even get me started on presenters—that will make the 2014 AMAs one of the best ever and a can't-miss live event. Need to get up to speed on Charli XCX? Here's some info about her from this morning's press release:
London-based singer and songwriter Charli XCX is quickly proving an unqualified phenomenon with her edgy, yet addictive approach. Since her first critically-acclaimed track, “Nuclear Seasons” in 2011, the 22 year-old, Charlotte Aitchison, co-wrote the #1 smash single, “Fancy” with Iggy Azalea, and penned last year’s double platinum summer it-song, “I Love It” recorded by Icona Pop, which she is featured on. Most recently, Charli XCX released the platinum selling “Boom Clap” single from the The Fault in Our Stars: Music From the Motion Picture soundtrack, landing the #1 spot on Top 40 radio along with a brand new song, “Break The Rules,” from her forthcoming sophomore studio album Sucker arriving December 16th via Neon Gold/Atlantic Records.
