Pink Pays Tribute To Olivia Newton-John With Performance At 2022 AMAs
At the 2022 American Music Awards on Nov. 20, Pink delivered an emotional musical tribute to Olivia Newton-John, who passed away over the summer.
During the powerhouse performance from inside the Microsoft Theater at L.A. Live in Los Angeles, Pink covered the star’s classic “Hopelessly Devoted To You” from the 1978 hit movie Grease. For the chills-inducing moment, the “Try” singer donned a glitzy nude gown featuring long sleeves and opulent feathers. As she belted out the ballad, photos of Olivia were shown on the big screen behind her, bringing some audience members to tears.
This was Pink’s second time taking the AMAs stage that evening. Earlier in the night, the 43-year-old got the party started by opening the show with a high-energy performance of her new single, “Never Gonna Not Dance Again.”
Olivia died at the age of 73 in August after a long battle with breast cancer. According to an Instagram post shared to her account by her husband, John Easterling, the “Physical” singer passed “peacefully” at her Southern California ranch while surrounded by family and friends.
