Shania Twain Takes 2019 American Music Awards Back to ’90s Country Glory
Country icon Shania Twain closed the 2019 American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night (Nov. 24), taking the stage at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles to perform a medley of her greatest hits that reminded everyone in the audience and at home why fans have so much nostalgia for '90s country.
Kelsea Ballerini introduced Twain, who began her performance seated, dressed in a very flowery pink gown and playing a glittery pink acoustic guitar. She ran through stripped-down acoustic renditions of songs from Twenty-One Pilots, Drake and Taylor Swift before beginning to gently pluck her own "Still the One" from the strings.
That led into a transition that found Twain on stage with a troupe of dancers, performing a high-energy medley of her hits that ran through "Any Man of Mine," "That Don't Impress Me Much" and "Man! I Feel Like a Woman," which provided a crowd-pleasing close to the 2019 AMAs that the audience were WAY into.
The five-time American Music Awards winner is the best-selling female country artist of all time. Her performance on Sunday night marked the first time she has graced the stage at the American Music Awards since 2003.
Twain was part of an all-star roster of performers from across all genres, including Selena Gomez, Billie Eilish, Camilla Cabello, Dua Lipa and Lizzo. Taylor Swift performed a career-spanning medley of her hits, and received the Artist of the Decade award.
Other performers included Thomas Rhett, who teamed with Wells Fargo to raise awareness for their Holiday Food Bank, with donations going toward Feeding America.
