American Music Awards packed a political punch during its first moments

'The craziest, most insane thing I've ever attempted': Pink practices death-defying stunt in preparation for American

"This year, more than perhaps any other in recent history, we needed the power of music to help us escape the news of the day.

2017 was a year that tested our faith", began Jamie Foxx, before he introduced the police officers, EMTs, and other first responders who work tirelessly to save people this year. "At these moments of crises, heroes emerge".

"Black-ish" actress Tracee Ellis Ross said the show - taking place in the wake of multiple sexual allegations against powerful men in Hollywood, the media, business and politics - would honor women who "own our experiences, our bodies and our lives". Foxx gave a message of hope saying, "Together, we shall overcome the pain". "May we continue to progress as a nation as one of love and equality".

The 2017 AMAs promised us an epic first-time duet between pop divas Pink and Kelly Clarkson, and it did not disappoint. "We have to rise above and never say sorry for who you are".

Comedian Al Porter to take time off from Today FM show
The company has spoken with Al Porter and his management team and said they take any comments of this nature extremely seriously. TV3 also chose to cancel a planned rerun of the finale of Blind Date - a show fronted by Mr Porter - on Saturday evening.

The pair then took the stage for a heartfelt performance of R.E.M.'s 1993 hit ballad "Everybody Hurts". Clarkson, meanwhile, wore a form-fitting, off-the-shoulder gown.

The two singers had never met before the dress rehearsal but when they finally hit the AMAs stage at the beginning of the ceremony, their duet was ideal, wowing the audience and landing them a standing ovation.

Pink replied, "You're joking! That voice", Pink wrote in the caption for the photo.

Later on, both vocalists will sing solo. Clarkson started things out with her first big single, "Miss Independent".
