One person who is guaranteed to go home a winner is Annie Lennox, who will receive the Award of Merit, and put on a show herself.
"We are delighted to honor Annie Lennox at this year's AMAs," producer Larry Klein said. "Through her work with the groundbreaking Eurythmics to her solo career, Annie has always been at the forefront of music. She is a truly exceptional artist."
