Mariah Carey To Perform “With You” At 2018 American Music Awards

Entertainment

The 2018 American Music Awards (Oct. 9) will feel like honey when Mariah Carey takes center stage at the awards ceremony, announced Tuesday (Sept. 25).

The award-winning singer will premiere her new song “With You,” the latest single off her upcoming fifteenth studio album. Recently, Carey made waves at the iHeartRadio Music Festival with a medley of her greatest hits, including her new promotional single “GTFO” that has since generated buzz on the Internet.

The 48-year-old first wowed the AMAs crowd in 1991 when she performed her New Jack Swing-flavored pop song “Someday.” The hit landed at the No. 1 spot on the pop charts; No. 3 on the R&B roster. Mimi last performed on the AMAs stage 10 years ago, singing “I Stay in Love” off her E=MC² album. The project topped the dance music charts.

That same year, Carey’s legacy was cemented in music history. The mother-of-two received a Special Honorary Award for clocking 18 No. 1 singles, one of which holds the record for most weeks spent at the top spot. To date, Carey has won 10 AMA trophies. This includes a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000, not too long after she became the only artist to have a No. 1 single in each year of the 1990s decade.

This year’s performers include KhalidHalsey, pop-dance producer Benny Blanco (Justin Bieber, Rihanna), and pop-rock band Imagine Dragons. Actress Tracee Ellis Ross will host this year’s AMAs, live on Oct. 9 at 8 p.m ET on ABC.
