The former Barney and Friends star opened the 2019 AMAs with a pair of hits from her upcoming third studio album. She began with an emotional rendition of her Justin Bieber-inspired ballad “Lose You to Love Me,” then got the audience on its feet with a performance of the more upbeat (but still extremely Bieber-inspired) “Look At Her Now.”
