P!nk kicked off the 2022 American Music Awards with a fun-filled performance of her current single, “Never Gonna Not Dance Again.”

On Sunday evening (Nov. 20), the chart-topping hitmaker skated down the Los Angeles streets before making her grand entrance into Microsoft Theater and through the crowd to the massive AMAs’ stage. Joined by over a dozen dancers on skates and her band, P!nk belted out the lyrics to the disco-tinged tune.

“I’m never gonna not dance again / I’m never gonna not dance again / Oh, I just wanna pop and lock to my records / There go all of my clothes  / Never gonna not dance again (oh),” P!nk sings on the infectious chorus of the tune. 

The hitmaker’s performance ended with a massive standing ovation that included her husband Carey Hart and their children, daughter Willow and son Jameson, cheering her on from the front row of the star-studded audience. 

“Never Gonna Not Dance Again” is the lead single from P!nk’s upcoming ninth studio album, TRUSTFALL, which will arrive on February 17, 2023. 

TRUSTFALL serves as the follow-up to her first live collection, All I Know So Far: Setlist, as well as her 2019 project, Hurts 2B Human, which included fan-favorite hits such as “Walk Me Home,” “Can We Pretend,” “Hustle,” “Love Me Anyway,” and more.

P!nk also recently announced that she will be embarking on a massive 2023 Stadium Tour, dubbed the Summer Carnival Tour, in support of her new album.

P!NK’s Summer Carnival Tour kicks off on July 24 in Toronto, Ontario at Rogers Centre and continues through October 9, where the tour will wrap up in Phoenix, Arizona at Chase Field. 

Produced by Live Nation, the 21-city tour will visit Boston’s Fenway Park, NYC’s Citi Field, Chicago’s Wrigley Field, Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium and more before wrapping up in Phoenix’s Chase Field on October 9, 2023.

The trek features special guests Brandi Carlile, Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, Grouplove and DJ Kid Cut Up.

Later in the show, P!nk is also set to deliver an emotional tribute performance to the late Olivia Newton-John, who died of breast cancer at 73-years-old in August of 2022.  

The 2022 American Music Awards featured performances from Carrie Underwood, Imagine Dragons, P!NK, Yola, Anitta, Bebe Rexha, D-Nice (House DJ), Dove Cameron, GloRilla, J.I.D., Lil Baby, WizKid, Tems, and more.

Stevie Wonder also joined forces with Ari Lennox and Charlie Puth to perform a medley of Lionel Richie’s hit songs in honor of the American Idol judge and former Commodores member, who is the 2022 AMAs Icon Award recipient.

Additionally, Jimmie Allen, Meghan Trainor, Dan + Shay, Dustin Lynch, Ellie Goulding, Jessie James Decker, Kelly Rowland, Kim Petras, Latto, Melissa Etheridge, Sabrina Carpenter and Smokey Robinson, Karreuche Tran, Roselyn Sanchez, Niecy Nash-Betts and Sheryl Lee Ralph, and Liza Koshy were on hand to present during the coveted awards show ceremony.
