A legendary Boston R&B group will take the stage this weekend for a live performance at the American Music Awards.

Bell Biv DeVoe, an offshoot of the Roxbury-bred group New Edition, will perform a medley of hits during the AMAs, which will be held Sunday night at The Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles and broadcast live starting at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, and Ronnie DeVoe will perform a few of Bell Biv DeVoe’s early ’90s hits, including “Poison” and “Do Me.” The group first played the AMAs back in 1991 shortly after their #1 single “B.B.D. (I Thought It Was Me?),” hit the top of the Billboard R&B chart.

“Wassup y’all !!!,” the group wrote. “We are so excited to perform at this year’s American Music Awards to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Poison!”
