INTERNATIONAL MUSIC SUPERSTAR PITBULL TO HOST THE "2013 AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS(R)" ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24 AT 8 PM ET/PT ON ABC

PITBULL AND KE$HA TO PERFORM NEW HIT SINGLE "TIMBER"

Los Angeles, CA (November 5, 2013) - dick clark productions has announced that global music sensation Pitbull will host the "2013 American Music Awards" which will broadcast live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on ABC. Serving as the show's first host since 2008, Pitbull will also perform his new hit single "Timber" with Ke$ha. They join previously announced superstar performers Luke Bryan, Miley Cyrus, Florida Georgia Line, Lady Gaga, Imagine Dragons, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and One Direction. Additional acts and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.

"I am truly honored to be hosting the 2013 American Music Awards," says Pitbull (Armando Christian Perez). "The night is only about one thing, fun! So buckle and get ready. Dále!"

"Pitbull is a multi-talented, global superstar and the right man to take the reins of the night, which is going to be one great party," said American Music Awards long-time producer Larry Klein. "That's why he is called Mr. Worldwide. He's the perfect choice to celebrate the universal language of music."

dick clark Productions and the AMAs have long been supportive of the Latin music community. From Richie Valens to Los Tigres del Norte to Enrique, countless numbers of Latino stars have graced the AMA, American Bandstand and New Year's Rockin' Eve stages. This year marks the l5th year anniversary of the creation of the Favorite Artist Latin category, and the 25th anniversary of Gloria Estefan's appearance on the AMAs, the first Latin star to do so. What better way to celebrate the occasion than having Mr. Worldwide, Pitbull, host the show.

The "2013 American Music Awards" is produced by dick clark productions and executive produced by Allen Shapiro and Michael Mahan.

Preceding the ABC broadcast for the 5th consecutive year will be the "Coca-Cola Red Carpet LIVE! @ The 2013 AMAs" pre-show hosted by Lance Bass, Rosie Pierri, Jordin Sparks and Jenna Ushkowitz. This year's pre-show performers will include Kurt Hugo Schneider, Jabbawockeez, Jesse McCartney and Fifth Harmony. Live coverage will stream online for fans worldwide starting at 5:00 p.m., ET / 2:00 p.m., PT on November 24th and for the first time will be available on Yahoo.com, this year's official digital distributor of the American Music Awards Experience. The stream can also be watched at TheAMAs.com, ABC.com, Time Warner Cable's Facebook page, and the websites within the Cumulus Radio Network, the AMAs official radio partner.

The "American Music Awards" are voted on by the fans. For the seventh year in a row, winners will be determined by online voting. Fans can vote at the Coca-Cola AMA voting site AMAvote.com. In addition, for the first time in AMAs History, fans will also be able to vote for their favorite artists via Twitter.

His world tour sold out concerts in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, China and Japan. Pitbull's latest album release, Global Warming, features massive hit singles "Feel This Moment" featuring Christina Aguilera, and "Don't Stop The Party," which followed his 2 million plus selling single "Back In Time." On November 25, 2013, Pitbull will release a deluxe edition titled Global Warming: Meltdown, which includes the hit single "Timber" featuring Ke$ha along with 4 other brand new collaborations with Kelly Rowland, Mayer Hawthorne, Mohombi and Inna. Global Warming is the highly anticipated follow-up to Planet Pit, which earned critical acclaim and enjoyed massive commercial success with sales of more than 1.7 million albums and 19 million singles.

On the heels of her smash hits, "Die Young" and "C'Mon," Ke$ha recently released "Crazy Kids," the third single from her sophomore album, Warrior (Kemosabe/RCA Records), as well as "Timber," a collaboration with her label mate Pitbull that will appear on his upcoming 2014 album. Both singles are currently available at all digital music providers. Ke$ha has taken the world by storm since the release of her debut album, Animal, in 2010. That year, she was declared Billboard's Hot 100 Artist and her smash debut single "TiK ToK" was named Billboard's #1 Hot 100 Song, was the most played song of that year, and was the biggest-selling digital track in the world. Ke$ha has had seven consecutive Top 10 hits including three #1 singles: "TiK ToK," "Your Love Is My Drug" and "We R Who We R." Between her debut album Animal and her current release Warrior, Ke$ha has sold over 3.9 million units worldwide. Ke$ha has toured the world, playing over 200 live shows in support of Animal and its companion album Cannibal, and an additional 47 shows in support of her latest release, Warrior. She took home the MTV EMA for Best New Act in November 2010 and was nominated for 2 American Music Awards, 4 MTV VMA Awards and 6 Billboard Awards. She has over 27 million Facebook likes, and over 3.4 million Twitter followers. She has sold over 33 million combined tracks and ringtones in the U.S alone and over 55 million worldwide to date. Ke$ha is an international powerhouse, Animal has been certified Gold, Platinum or multi-Platinum in 16 markets (including Platinum in the United States and Double Platinum in Australia & Canada) and was the biggest selling debut album from an international female in 2010 in the UK. In the Fall of 2012, Ke$ha released an illustrated photo journal and scrapbook entitled My Crazy Beautiful Life with Touchstone. The book was a huge fan hit and was a precursor to her wildly successful MTV Show "Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life," which is set to begin its second season. The series, which follows Ke$ha as she navigates the drama, madness and euphoria of her professional and personal life, will return in the fall of 2013 with 8 new episodes on October 30th, 2013. In August 2013, Ke$ha launched her own jewelry line, Ke$ha Rose by Charles Albert. The line, which is entirely designed by Ke$ha, is based upon her love of nature and classic rock & roll style.
