ATLANTA -- November 14, 2012

Celebrities and music artists will walk the red carpet -- or should we say,
“green” carpet -- in more sustainable style this Sunday, November 18^th as
they gear up for the American Music Awards® at the Coca-Cola Red Carpet LIVE!
digital preshow.

On a special set, celebrity hosts will conduct interviews perched on furniture
constructed with re-purposed objects atop a red carpet made from recycled
materials. The diverse line-up, including Lance Bass, Kimberly Cole, Brad
Goreski, Sean Kingston, Eden Sher, and Tristan Wilds, will get the inside
scoop from artists heading into one of the biggest music events of the year.

The Coca-Cola Red Carpet LIVE! digital preshow will feature EKOCYCLE. This
brand initiative from The Coca-Cola Company and global music icon and producer
will.i.am is designed to inspire a social movement around living a more
sustainable lifestyle.

Along with official EKOCYCLE blogger Sian Pierre Regis, will.i.am will share
his vision for EKOCYCLE and showcase brand partners, Beats by Dr. Dre®,
Case-Mate®, Levi’s® and New Era®.

Also on the EKOCYCLE program, Paraguayan musical group, The H20 Ensemble, will
perform a mixture of popular hits from some of the nominees using instruments
made from fully recycled materials.

The red carpet experience will get even more musical with a special
performance from Jason Derulo and Alyssa Bernal. Bernal, the winner of the
Coca-Cola Perfect Harmony Mix’On music collaboration was inspired by teens
across the nation.

Over a span of five weeks three up-and-coming Latin artists, Maffio, Joey
Montana and eventual winner Alyssa Bernal, came together to mix their unique
styles. Together they highlighted their individuality and heritage through
authentic, studio-recorded collaboration sessions. Through the digital
platform www.coke.com/mixon, teens voted on their favorite collaboration and
were able to keep tabs on how “their” artist was doing with a real-time

Along with choosing the winning artist to collaborate with Derulo, teens
weighed in on weekly inspiration topics such as Jason’s red-carpet outfit,
dance moves and what instrument to use to perform the Coca-Cola 5-note melody.
