Jimmy Kimmel Jimmy Kimmel

ABC didn't have to look very far to find a host for the American Music Awards.

Late-night son Jimmy Kimmel will emcee the Nov. 23 award show, the network announced. Kimmel is no stranger to the AMA stage — he's hosted four previous times and has been deemed "a masterful host with incredible spontaneity and wit" by Orly Adelson, president of Dick Clark Productions.

"I agree with Orly completely," Kimmel responded.

The Jonas Brothers and Pink are among scheduled performers.
