Taylor Swift To Perform On AMAs As Label, Producer Reach Agreement

Taylor Swift will perform on the American Music Awards this Sunday, after a public display over clearance to perform her older hit material controlled by Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta’s Big Machine Label Group was resolved.

AMA producers Dick Clark Productions today announced an agreement with BMLG.

A statement published by Variety reads:

“The Big Machine Label Group and Dick Clark Productions announce that they have come to terms on a licensing agreement that approves their artists’ performances to stream post show and for re-broadcast on mutually approved platforms. This includes the upcoming American Music Awards performances. It should be noted that recording artists do not need label approval for live performances on television or any other live media. Record label approval is only needed for contracted artists’ audio and visual recordings and in determining how those works are distributed.”
