The 2022 American Music Awards are being presented in a live ceremony from Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater on Sunday night.

The Wayne Brady-hosted show kicked off on ABC with Pink roller-skating onto the stage singing her new single, “Never Gonna Not Dance Again.”

An excited Brady then took the stage for his monologue, wearing a rainbow-colored suit, and joking that “the bribes finally paid off,” as he was such a big music fan, much like those who vote for the winners, he screamed when he was offered the job.

Before Sunday night’s show began, Taylor Swift was off to a strong start, winning three awards presented during a pre-show live stream. If she wins the three awards she’s nominated for during the main show, including the top prize of artist of the year, Swift will be the most-awarded artist in AMAs history. Other nominees for artist of the year are Adele, Bad Bunny, Beyoncé, Drake, Harry Styles and The Weeknd.

Bad Bunny and Beyoncé, among the lead nominees with Swift and Drake going into the main show, each won two off-air awards as did Kendrick Lamar and Morgan Wallen. Bad Bunny topped this year’s AMA nominations with eight nods, with Beyoncé, Swift and Drake each nominated for six awards. Adele, Harry Styles and The Weeknd each scored five nominations.

Wallen’s wins are his first at the AMAs as the chart-topping country artist returns to awards consideration after his recent scandal for using a racial slur.

Also during the pre-show, Swedish rock band Ghost won the first AMA for favorite rock album while Elton John and Dua Lipa, performing Sunday night at Dodger Stadium in the final North American show of John’s farewell tour, won collaboration of the year for their hit remake, “Cold Heart PNAU Remix.”

The off-air awards were announced during a Twitter and Discord audio livestream hosted by singer/songwriter Mark Tuan of GOT7,  ’s Tiffany Taylor and Billboard’s Tetris Kelly.

The 2022 American Music Awards, airing at 8 p.m. ET and PT on ABC, are hosted by Wayne Brady.

The 2022 AMAs is set to feature performances by Pink, Carrie Underwood, Ari Lennox, Dove Cameron, Yola, GloRilla, Lil Baby, Bebe Rexha, Anitta, Imagine Dragons and JID and Charlie Puth and Stevie Wonder. D-Nice is serving as the house DJ.

In addition to her main performance, Pink is set to return to the AMAs stage to pay tribute to the late Olivia Newton-John.

And Lionel Richie is set to receive the 2022 Icon Award, given to an artist whose work has produced a global influence over the music industry. Puth and Wonder will be part of a performance honoring Richie’s career.

Presenters at the 2022 AMAs include Dan & Shay, Dustin Lynch, Ellie Goulding, Jessie James Decker, Jimmie Allen, Karrueche Tran, Kelly Rowland, Kim Petras, Liza Koshy, Latto, Meghan Trainor, Melissa Etheridge, Niecy Nash-Betts, Roselyn Sanchez, Sabrina Carpenter, Sheryl Lee Ralph and Smokey Robinson.

AMA winners are voted entirely by fans. Nominees are based on key fan interactions — as reflected on the Billboard charts — including streaming, album and song sales, radio airplay and tour grosses. Measurements are tracked by Billboard and its data partner Luminate, in the eligibility period of Sept. 24, 2021, through Sept. 22, 2022.
