Kelly Clarkson + P!nk Joining Forces for 2017 AMAs Opening Performance
Well this is pretty f------ perfect: P!nk and Kelly Clarkson, two of contemporary music's pop rock pioneers, are joining forces to open the 2017 American Music Awards, according to Billboard. The performance will serve as their very first collaboration.
The big-voiced belters, who both released new albums in October, join the likes of BTS, Christina Aguilera and Selena Gomez as performers.
Just weeks ago, Clarkson told Entertainment Weekly she'd love to work with P!nk, and added she hoped saying it out loud would align the cosmos set a duet into motion.
"I’m a huge fan of Pink," she said. "I haven’t had the chance yet to work with her. I think if you project it enough, it might happen, right? I love her because she has done the whole singer-songwriter record she recently did, she does pop, she loves rock...She is who she is, and that’s cool if you like her, and it’s cool if you don’t. I relate to that, so I think that’s why I like her a lot.”
The AMAs air November 19 on ABC.
