The 2019 American Music Awards delivered a few big surprises on Sunday night with some unexpected performances marking major moments for the annual event.
Ciara hosted the show this year and donned several enviable outfits throughout the night and managed to serve up a power-packed performance of her latest single, “Melanin.”
Lizzo took the stage to perform her latest single “Jerome” in a wine-colored gown that was simply stunning. She earned a standing ovation from the star-studded crowd when she ended the soulful song on her knees.
Toni Braxton made a triumphant return to the AMAs stage with a stirring rendition of her hit “Un-break My Heart.” She was accompanied by violinists, cellists and other string players as she belted out the iconic R&B hit. The singer who last hit the American Music Awards stage in 2001 wore a lacy white dress that showed off every curve and reminded everyone in the room that she’s still got it.
