With the passing of Olivia Newton-John, P!nk shared her admiration for the Aussie by performing ‘Hopelessly Devoted to You,’ at the 2022 American Music Awards. 

The tribute was simple and elegant, with P!nk standing centre stage and wowing the audience with her rendition. Accompanying the singer were images of Newton-John and fans swaying their arms behind her. 

After a lengthy battle with cancer, Newton-John tragically passed away on the 8th of August, 2022. 

“[Olivia Newton-John] was amazing,” said P!nk. “She had such a beautiful ethereal voice. She is a hard act to follow. She was a very kind, kind human being and I’m happy to be the one doing it.”
