Pink is set to pay tribute to the legendary Oliver Newton-John at the upcoming 2022 American Music Awards.
The So What singer has been chosen to remember the life and talents of Newton-John, a 10-time AMA winner herself, after she died from a long-running battle with breast cancer in August.
The AMAs will take place on November 20 at Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, and will stream the next day on Hulu.

Newton-John died on August 8 at the age of 73, with the news touching the world.
As well as an AMA winner, the Aussie performer had also been a host of the coveted awards ceremony, having co-hosted the ceremony with Aretha Franklin and Glen Campbell in 1976.
Pink herself praised Newton-John following her death, calling the Aussie darling an “angel”.
After hearing the news, the 43-year-old shared a photo of her and Newton-John, writing, “I met her maybe three times- and she was an absolute angel.
“One of the loveliest, kindest, light from within human beings I have ever met. Kindness personified. May she Rest In Peace and may her family be held in love and light during this difficult time.”
