Stevie Wonder, Charlie Puth, More Best and Worst Performances

For its 50th anniversary, the American Music Awards showcase generations of talent, from the first GloRilla nominee and performer to timeless icon Stevie Wonder.

Artists from a variety of genres, including Carrie Underwood, Imagine Dragons, Anitta, Lil Baby and Yola, top Sunday’s lineup, while new Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Lionel Richie is set to take home the annual Icon Award and a tribute directed by Wonder.

Pink is penciled in for a pair of performances – her sparkling new single “Never Gonna Not Dance Again” and a tribute to the late Olivia Newton-John.

Debuts are also an important part of the event: David Guetta and Bebe Rexha unveil “I’m Good (Blue)” for the first time on American television, while Dove Cameron and Anitta take their first steps on the stage of WADA.

Here’s a look at how the artists performed at the 2022 AMAs.

Stevie Wonder and Charlie Puth, “Three Times a Lady”, “Easy”, “All Night”, “Tell You, Tell Me”, “Jesus Is Love”, “We Are the World”

AMAs Icon Award winner Lionel Richie has a bottomless catalog, so extracting it for a condensed mix is ​​an unenviable task.

But Richie’s pal Stevie Wonder and pop prodigy Charlie Puth attempted to engage in a “Lionel Richie tennis match of copyrighted material”, as Puth called it, allowing many extracts. With the pianos facing each other, Wonder and Puth swapped Richie and Commodores classics, including “Three Times a Lady” (Wonder), “Easy” (Puth), “Jesus Is Love” (Wonder) and “Say You, Say Me” (Put).
