Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and Luke Bryan will take the stage at this year's American Music Awards, set to air live on ABC on November 24th. The four new additions join previously announced AMA acts Miley Cyrus, Imagine Dragons, One Direction and Florida Georgia Line.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis may end up taking the stage several times at this year's AMA: The hip-hop duo, who broke out this year with their second LP The Heist, are in the running for a pack-leading six awards, including Artist of the Year, New Artist of the Year and Single of the Year for their hit "Thrift Shop."

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
