American Music Awards: Pink to Perform "Beautiful Trauma"
The pop star will perform the title track from her latest album at the fan-voted awards show.
Pink is the latest star set to perform at this year's American Music Awards. Dick Clark Productions and ABC on Thursday announced that the singer will perform the title track from her latest album Beautiful Trauma. The performance is being dubbed as the most daring production to ever be included during the awards show.
Beautiful Trauma is Pink’s seventh studio album and was released last month. The title track was released in September as the first promotional single off the album, following the release of the debut single “What About Us” in August. Beautiful Trauma was the singer's second album to debut at the top of the Billboard 200 chart, following 2012’s The Truth About Love.
The international pop star is no stranger to the AMAs. Pink first performed her contemporary R&B single “Most Girls” in 2001, followed by performances of “Trouble” in 2003 and “Sober” in 2008. She also teamed with Sarah McLachlan to perform the latter’s song “Angel” during the 2008 edition of the awards show. The five-time AMA nominee’s most recent performance on the AMAs was an acrobatic-infused rendition of her hit song “Try” in 2012.
The fan-voted awards show will be broadcast on ABC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday, Nov. 19. The AMAs are now in its 45th year.
It has previously been announced that Diana Ross will be honored with the American Music Award for Lifetime Achievement. The legendary singer will also take the stage to make a rare performance; Christina Aguilera will perform a tribute to Whitney Houston, with songs from The Bodyguard, in honor of the film’s 25th anniversary; and Selena Gomez, BTS, Kelly Clarkson and Demi Lovato have also been confirmed to perform.
Nominations for the 2017 AMAs were announced in October. Bruno Mars has the most with eight; Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Ed Sheeran, The Chainsmokers and The Weeknd follow with five each; and Justin Bieber, Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi all have three.
