Whitney Houston is back and will be performing at the American Music Awards as a special honoree.
Houston has received 21 AMAs from 37 nominations and now will be adding another one – as she will be given the International Artist Award at the ceremony later this month.
The singer will also be on stage performing her new single, I Didn’t Know My Own Strength.
“We’re honored to have Whitney Houston back on the AMA stage after 10 years,” said AMA producer Larry Klein said.
“She has won the most AMAs of any female artist in history and is without a doubt an international superstar so it’s only fitting we honor her with the International Artist Award this year at such an important time in her career.”
The International Artist Award is a huge honor, as it has only been given seven times in the 36 years.
Whitney will be added to the list of artists who have received it such as, Michael Jackson, Rod Stewart, Led Zeppelin, Bee Gees, Aerosmith, Madonna and Beyonce Knowles.
Other performances will include Rihanna, Shakira, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez and The Black Eyed Peas.
