The 2013 American Music Awards are only hours away from beginning, but for now there’s the red carpet to look forward to. Fans can tune into the Yahoo.com Coca-Cola Red Carpet LIVE! event in the video above to get an early look at the AMA attendees when the red carpet begins at 5 p.m. ET.

Hosting the carpet are former *NSYNC-er Lance Bass, Jordin Sparks and fashion blogger Aimee Song. Expect to see the likes of Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera — all slated to perform during the awards show — walk the red carpet.

The 2013 American Music Awards will air on ABC at 8 p.m. ET. Who do you hope takes home the top awards — and just how crazy do you expect Miley Cyrus to get during her performance?
