Pink Performs Olivia Newton-John Tribute at 2022 AMAs — Watch

Pink AMAs 2022 Olivia Newton-John

Pink showed her hopeless devotion to the late, great Olivia Newton-John with a special performance at the 2022 American Music Awards on Sunday.

After opening the ceremony with the high-energy debut of her new single “Never Gonna Not Dance Again,” Pink returned to the AMAs stage later in the broadcast for a tribute to Newton-John, who died in August at the age of 73.

Introduced by Melissa Etheridge, Pink delivered an emotional rendition of “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” the Grease ballad made iconic by Newton-John in the 1978 flm.

Newton-John had a long, successful history at the American Music Awards. The “Physical” singer won 10 AMAs throughout her career, including four trophies for Favorite Female Pop/Rock Artist in 1974, 1975, 1976 and 1982. She was nominated for three additional awards.
