P!nk took the stage at the 2022 American Music Awards tonight (November 20) to pay a moving tribute to the late Olivia Newton-John.
A Newton-John slideshow played in the background as P!nk sang “Hopelessly Devoted To You” in honor of the Fat star. Although no one can compare to Newton-John’s original rendition of the song, P!nk’s jaw-dropping vocals were on full display during the performance.
Newton-John died in August this year after a long and fierce battle with breast cancer. She’s won the AMA 10 times, including winning Favorite Female Artist in the pop and rock categories four times, a record unmatched in the show’s first 20 years.
Earlier in the ceremony, P!nk kicked off the AMAs by skating through the show in a sparkly tank top and pink roller skates to perform her new single “Never Gonna Not Dance Again.” She transformed the entire stage into a retro ice rink, complete with neon lights and disco balls, called “P!nk’s Rink” for the uplifting performance.
“Never Gonna Not Dance Again” was released earlier this month. Additionally, the mother-of-two recently announced that an upcoming album is on the way. The disc, titled Fall in confidence,should arrive on February 17, 2023.
The 2022 American Music Awards, hosted by Wayne Brady, kicked off tonight at 8 p.m. Watch the rest of the night live on ABC, or stream it starting tomorrow on Hulu.
