American Music Awards 2015 Live Stream: Here's How to Watch Show Online


This year's American Music Awards kicks off Sunday night with host Jennifer Lopez and is featuring performances from some of the biggest names in the music industry. Justin Bieber will take the stage, likely to perform a song from his new album Purpose; other performers include Demi Lovato, One Direction and Coldplay. The show will air on the ABC network at 8 p.m. Eastern and can be live-streamed via the American Music Awards' website.

"I've always loved the American Music Awards. I don't know, it has a different energy than, like, the Grammys or any of the other awards shows. There's just something about it that every time I perform, I don't know, it's kind of like a lucky show for me," Lopez told Extra in an interview published Tuesday. "I win there! It's a good thing for me, and when they asked me to host this year... Oddly, it's not something I love to do. I don't think you've ever seen me host anything, ever. But I just love the team there, and I love the show and the energy of the show."
