Superstar singer Taylor Swift will be allowed to perform her old hits at the upcoming American Music Awards.

Last week, Swift said her former music label, Big Machine Label Group, had denied her request to play some of her early songs at the award show, where she is being honored as Artist of the Decade.

However, the record label has denied her claims.

A statement released by Big Machine Label Group clarified that "recording artists do not need label approval for live performances on television or any other live media."

The statement added that "record label approval is only needed for contracted artists' audio and visual recordings and in determining how those works are distributed."

The statement said Big Machine Label Group and Dick Clark Productions had "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."
