Mariah to Perform at 36th Annual “American Music Awards” November 23 on ABC

< > Dick Clark productions president, Orly Adelson, announced today that Mariah Carey will perform at the 2008 American Music Awards.

“We are thrilled to have Mariah perform at this year’s AMAs. She is one of the best female vocalists of our time and her performances never fail to delight and surprise the audience,” said AMA producer Larry Klein. Carey’s smash hits, “Touch My Body” and “Bye Bye,” resulted in a #1 debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart for her latest effort, E=MC². Carey reached an historic career achievement earlier this year when her single “Touch My Body” became her 18th #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, surpassing one of the most enduring chart records in Billboard history, Elvis Presley’s 17 #1’s. The 11th studio album of her career, E=MC² is Carey’s follow-up to The Emancipation of Mimi, which sold over 10 million copies worldwide and reached # 1 on the Billboard Hot 200. Released in April 2005, Mimi was Soundscan’s biggest-selling album of the year which brought total sales of Mariah’s albums, singles and videos to over 160 million worldwide, making her the top-selling female recording artist in history.

In addition to performing Mariah is nominated for an AMA in the following categories:
Favorite Female Artist – Pop or Rock Music
Favorite Album – Soul/Rhythm & Blues Music: E=MC²

The show will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and broadcast live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 23 (8:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) on ABC. This year’s AMA tickets and VIP ticket packages are now on sale at or call 1-877-AEG-TICKETS.
