The American Music Awards are as smitten with American Idol as everyone else.

Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Daughtry have been added to the schedule of performers for the 37th annual awards, airing live Nov. 22 on ABC. They join fellow Idol alum Adam Lambert, who was announced earlier as a performer.

"American Idol continually produces great talent, and we are looking forward to hosting Kelly, Carrie, Daughtry and Adam. It's a great fit for the AMAs," said producer Larry Klein.


Other performers on the show, to be held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, will include Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez and the Black Eyed Peas.

The AMA nominees were announced last week. Taylor Swift and Michael Jackson each received five nominations, followed by rapper Eminem, who earned four. Beyoncé, the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, Kings of Leon and T.I. each received three.
