The former Fifth Harmony member performed the autobiographical song on the award show stage Tuesday night.

Camila Cabello earned a standing ovation from the audience at the American Music Awards after she performed "Consequences," off her debut album, Camila.

Standing before a lone microphone in a ball gown and elbow-length gloves, Cabello showed off her range with the emotional ballad, a far cry from her summer dance hit "Havana," which won the award for favorite pop/rock song earlier in the night.

The 21-year-old singer also took home the award for new artist of the year and was nominated for favorite video and favorite collaboration for "Havana," shared with rapper Young Thug, as well as favorite female pop/rock artist.

Backed by an orchestral ensemble, Cabello brought the crowd to their feet with her song about a former love.

The former Fifth Harmony member spent part of the last year touring with Taylor Swift, who thanked Cabello upon accepting the award for tour of the year. 

In August, Cabello took home two statues at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, for artist of the year and video of the year. Her first solo album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in January.
