LOS ANGELES (AP) — It’ll be a little bit country and a little bit rock ‘n’ roll on stage at next month’s American Music Awards.

Organizers announced Wednesday that Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj and Linkin Park will perform at the 40th annual ceremony on Nov. 18.

All are up for awards. Minaj is the night’s leading nominee, along with Rihanna, with four bids each. Swift is nominated for favorite female country artist, and Linkin Park is in the running for alternative artist.

Fans can pick the winners by voting online.

Christina Aguilera will also perform at the ceremony in Los Angeles, where it will be broadcast live on ABC.
