Justin Timberlake is set to take the stage at the upcoming American Music Awards, marking his first performance at the prizegiving event as a solo artist.

The “Suit & Tie” hitmaker last performed at the American Music Awards with his band ‘N Sync in 2000.

Timberlake joins the likes of Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Luke Bryan, One Direction, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and Kendrick Lamar among this year’s show stoppers.

Timberlake, who has already won three AMAs for his solo work in the past, is nominated in five categories, including Artist of the Year.

The 2013 AMAs will be held in Los Angeles on Nov. 24.
