Artist Of The Year finalist Justin Bieber will not be in attendance at the 2016 American Music Awards.

He will, however, be featured on the television broadcast.

dcp confirms that Sunday’s show will feature a video of Bieber performing from Zurich. The “Love Yourself” singer’s “Purpose World Tour” stops in the Swiss city on November 17; the performance will presumably be taped at that concert.

He joins an AMAs bill that also includes James Bay, Fifth Harmony, Lady Gaga, Green Day, Niall Horan, John Legend, Bruno Mars, Shawn Mendes, Twenty One Pilots, The Weeknd, special duets from The Chainsmokers and Halsey, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, Maroon 5 with Kendrick Lamar, and Sting.

Gigi Hadid and Jay Pharaoh are hosting Sunday’s broadcast, which airs at 8PM ET on ABC.
