BMLG SIGNS OFF ON TAY'S AMA LOOK (UPDATE)

Big Machine Label Group has issued a statement that apparently (though implicitly) addresses Taylor Swift's participation in the upcoming American Music Awards.

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.

The release was initially presented as a joint statement from BMLG and Dick Clark Productions, but the latter company has said it had no part in document by releasing one of its own: "At no time," it reads, "did Dick Clark Productions agree to, create, authorize or distribute a statement in partnership with Big Machine Label Group regarding Taylor Swift’s performance at the 2019 American Music Awards. Any final agreement on this matter needs to be made directly with Taylor Swift’s management team. We have no further comment."

There had been considerable back and forth about whether Taylor would be able to perform her older songs on the show. You may now get on with your lives.
