Pink and Kelly Clarkson will open the AMAs with a collaborative performance.
What kind of epicness?! A few weeks ago, Clarkson said she had always wanted to team up with Pink for something. She got her wish, because what Kelly Clarkson wants, Kelly Clarkson gets (vote “Medicine” for the next single)!
“I’m a huge fan of Pink,” she said. “I haven’t had the chance yet to work with her. I think if you project it enough, it might happen, right? I love her because she has done the whole singer-songwriter record she recently did, she does pop, she loves rock…She is who she is, and that’s cool if you like her, and it’s cool if you don’t. I relate to that, so I think that’s why I like her a lot.”
As previously announced, music legend, Diana Ross, will also take the stage for a rare performance at the “2017 American Music Awards” and will be honored with the “American Music Award for Lifetime Achievement.” Christina Aguilera will pay tribute to Whitney Houston and music from “The Bodyguard” with a performance in honor of the film’s 25th anniversary, which falls on the same week as the awards ceremony. Other previously announced performers include BTS, Alessia Cara & Zedd, Kelly Clarkson, Selena Gomez, Niall Horan, Imagine Dragons & Khalid, Nick Jonas, Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato, Shawn Mendes, P!NK, Portugal. The Man, and Hailee Steinfeld & Alesso ft. Florida Georgia Line & watt.
The AMAs will broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 8:00pm ET on ABC.
