The singer showed up to the awards show on rollerskates and transformed the Microsoft Theater into “Pink’s Rink,” accompanied by a large set of dancers as she emulated the positive energy of her new single.
The performance opened with a pre-taped segment that was reminiscent of the song’s colorful and campy music video. “Oh, I just wanna pop and lock to my records/There go all of my clothes,” she sang. “Never gonna not dance again.”
The performance closed with the musician — known for her onstage stunts — joining her dancers for a show-stopping conga line as the crowd stood up for a standing ovation.
The performance is the first of two Pink planned for this year’s AMAs. She’s also set to pay tribute to late singer-actress, Olivia Newton-John, who died back in August after a lengthy battle with breast cancer.
Pink released “Never Gonna Not Dance Again” earlier this month, marking her second song this year after “Irrelevant.” Last year, Pink dropped a live album, All I Know So Far: Setlist, while her most recent studio effort, Hurts 2B Human, dropped in 2019.
Pink still hasn’t announced an official follow-up to Hurts 2B Human, though she is set to embark on a massive North American stadium tour next year. The Summer Carnival trek will kick off July 14 at Toronto’s Rogers Centre and wrap Oct. 9 at Chase Field in Phoenix. Grouplove and KidCutUp will provide support throughout the trek, while Brandi Carlile, Pat Benatar, and Neil Giraldo will perform on select dates.
