Nick Jonas, Christina Aguilera to Perform at This Year’s ACM Awards

Following in the footsteps of the CMA Awards, the annual Academy of Country Music Awards ceremony will also dip into the pop music pool.

The ACM announced Monday that Nick Jonas and Christina Aguilera will perform at the April 19 show. Jonas will join country duo Dan + Shay, while Aguilera will participate in a “surprise duet.”

Not strangers to each other, Jonas recently served as Aguilera’s Battle Rounds mentor on “The Voice.”

This past fall’s CMA Awards show featured pop stars Meghan Trainor and Ariana Grande as performers. Trainor joined Miranda Lambert, while Grande performed alongside Little Big Town.

Other newly announced ACM Awards performers include Alan Jackson, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, Brooks & Dunn, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town and Rascal Flatts. They joined previously confirmed acts Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Reba, Blake Shelton, George Strait, Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Thomas Rhett and Cole Swindell.

Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton co-host the show, which airs on CBS.
