Pink And Kelly Clarkson Open The 2017 American Music Awards

Pink and Kelly Clarkson opened up the 2017 American Music Awards with a whole lot of girl power.

The AMAs is one of the biggest nights in music and, with some of the biggest names in the industry in attendance, a show-stopping opener was a must—and Pink and Clarkson did not disappoint. For the superstars first collaboration ever, they performed a moody cover of R.E.M's hit song "Everybody Hurts."

Before the show, the pop stars took to social media to gush about each other.

The match-up made in heaven comes just a few weeks after Clarkson made it clear that she was more than interested in sharing the stage with fellow pop diva Pink.  

"I'm a huge fan of Pink," Clarkson told EW editor-in-chief Henry Goldblatt in November 2017. "I haven't had the chance yet to work with her. I think if you project it enough, it might happen, right?"

Well, it looks like Clarkson spoke her wish into existence, and the AMAs were all the better for it.
