Lady Gaga has joined the list of performers at the upcoming 2016 American Music Awards.

The singer, whose album “Joanne” dropped on Friday, will perform live at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Nov. 20, Dick Clark Productions and ABC announced Tuesday. “Bringing #JOANNE to the @AMAs on 11/20! See u there,” tweeted Gaga, 30, born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta. The nine-time AMA nominee, who won in 2010 for favorite female artist pop/rock, joins previously announced show opener Bruno Mars and this year’s American Music Award of Merit honoree and performer Sting.

Gaga last attended the annual event in 2013, arriving on the red carpet riding a costume horse.
