Joining in on one of music’s biggest nights, Carly Rae Jepsen made her debut appearance at the 2012 American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (November 18).

The 26-year-old YouTube sensation worked the red carpet in a speckled 'n sexy frock, making her way down the press line at the NOKIA Theatre venue.

Along with taking the stage to perform her hit song “Call Me Maybe,” Carly is also hoping to take home "New Artist of the Year" honors.

This year’s 40th anniversary show also boasts performances from Nicki Minaj, No Doubt, Carrie Underwood, and Pitbull.

The AMA's were created back in 1973 by Dick Clark "to pay tribute to popular musicians from various genres of music and to put audiences in touch with the latest phenomena in American music."
