The 2022 American Music Awards took over the Microsoft Theater at L.A. Live in Los Angeles on Sunday night (Nov. 20), where some of the year’s biggest stars took the stage to deliver fan-favorite hits and brand-new tracks.

From P!nkCarrie Underwood and Anitta to Imagine DragonsJIDStevie Wonder, Dove Cameron and Yola, this year’s AMAs had something for every type of music fan, plus a number of buzzworthy surprise appearances and onstage collaborations.

Additionally, this year’s show unveiled a new award, song of soul, which spotlights an emerging, mission-driven artist who has inspired change and aims for social justice through their music. The first recipient is Yola’s “Break the Bough.” Yola performed the song at the ceremony, marking her first AMAs performance. Bebe Rexha was also among the stars to step on the AMAs stage for the first time this year, delivering her Billboard Hot 100 top 20 hit with David Guetta “I’m Good (Blue).”

The ceremony also featured an emotional tribute to the late Olivia Newton-John, who died in August at age 73. After opening the show with her new single, P!nk took the stage to perform John’s 1978 Grease classic “Hopelessly Devoted to You.”

After Lionel Richie was honored with the Icon Award, Stevie Wonder and Charlie Puth teamed up to honor his career with a mash-up of his hits including “Three Times a Lady,” “Easy,” “All Night Long (All Night)” and more.
