After several years of airing on Sundays in November, the American Music Awards broadcast will move to a new night and a new month in 2018.
ABC confirms that the 2018 ceremony will take place on Tuesday, October 9.
It will air live from 8-11PM EDT.
Further details – including nominees, presenters and performers – will be revealed much closer to the broadcast date.
The 2017 American Music Awards show notably posted a 10% year-over-year increase in overall live+same-day viewership. It held steady in the key adults 18-49 demographic.
dick clark productions will continue to produce the ceremony, which relies on commercial data to determine the nominees — and fan voting for the winners.
