Newton-John passed away in August from breast cancer at age 73, and Pink covered her most well-known song — “Hopelessly Devoted To You,” from the movie Grease.
Pink told People magazine, “[Newton-John] was a kind person. And she was really supportive of younger artists and she was present and [had] songs for days. She just — she was very unique, but you can’t think of another person like her. I hope I do it justice.”
Throughout Pink’s performance, a montage of photos of Newton-John were displayed on the AMAs stage behind her.
Before the tribute, Pink walked the AMAs red carpet with her husband, Carey Hart, and their two children, Willow and Jameson. She also opened the award show with a performance of her latest single, “Never Gonna Not Dance Again.”
“WHEN YOU GET TO SET THE TONE FOR THE WHOLE EVENING,” Pink tweeted before taking the stage.
Her ninth studio album, Trustfall, drops on February 17, 2023.
