    AMAs 2022: Pink gets standing ovation after performing tribute to Olivia Newton John | Daily Mail Online

    Pink had the honor of performing a tribute to Olivia Newton-John at the 50th Annual American Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday.

    With a monitor flashing images of the late singer, who was a 10-time AMA winner, the pop star gave a rousing rendition of Hopelessly Devoted To You, decked out in a pink-feathered gown and her blonde tresses styled short and feathered back off her face.

    The song was originally sung by Newton-John for the hit musical film Grease (1978), and its accompanying soundtrack, and went on to reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100 and number seven on the Adult Contemporary chart.

    Melissa Etheridge first came on the the AMA stage to introduce Pink. But before she called her out, the musician shared a few sweet sentiments about Newton-John.

    The Bring Me Some Water singer-songwriter went on to share how to hear her sing ‘was to feel the power of art to transform feelings, the feelings we all have of love and elation and disappointment into something sublime.’

    Pink (born Alecia Beth Moore Hart), 43, proceeded to deliver a passionate version of the song, which was also performed by Newton-John at the 21st Grammy Awards back in 1979. 

    By the end of the performance, the crowd erupted into a loud applause that quickly transformed into a standing ovation, that was led by Pink’s husband Carey Hart, 47, and their two children, 11-year-old daughter Willow and five-year-old son Jameson. 

    Pink also got to open the 2022 AMAs with a live debut of her new song, Never Gonna Not Dance Again.

    Before the show began, Pink praised the late singer and actress during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

    She was an absolute icon, and also, she was a wonderful human being. ‘I loved her voice,’ Pink shared while on the red carpet. ‘My daughter just got done doing Grease in her theatre production, and she actually helped me learn the song.’ 

    ‘One of the loveliest, kindest, light from within human beings I have ever met. Kindness personified. May she Rest In Peace and may her family be held in love and light during this difficult time,’ she wrote in the caption alongside a photo of the two singer’s together.

    And Newton-John went on to score many more of her Top 10 hits.

    He 10 wins at American Music Award dated back to 1974 when she won Favorite Album – Country for Let Me Be There and went through until 1982 when she won for Favorite Female Artist – Pop/Rock.

    Newton-John was also four-time Grammy Award winner whose music career included five number-one hit songs.

    Newton-John was 73-years-old when she passed away this past summer at her beloved ranch in the Santa Ynez Valley of California.

    She was diagnosed with breast cancer three times during her lifetime, beginning in 1992. 

    In the wake of her first recovery, the actress and singer became an advocate for breast cancer research and other health issues. 

    More than 25 years had gone by when she made the shocking announcement that she had again been diagnosed with breast cancer. It was during this time that she revealed she had a previous recurrence of the disease in 2013, but had decided to keep the news private.

    The If You Love Me, Let Me Know star revealed that her third diagnosis in 2017 had metastasized, spread to her bones, and progressed to Stage IV.

    Newton-John left behind her husband, John Easterling, whom she married in 2008, and her daughter Chloe, 36, whom she shared with her first husband Matt Lattanzi.
