Mickey Guyton made her American Music Awards performance debut with her single “All American” on Sunday, November 21.
Live from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CA, the GRAMMY-nominated singer brought her unifying single to life on the AMAs stage.
Joined by a live band on a set that was reminiscent of a Nashville honky-tonk, Guyton delivered a powerful performance of “All American” that earned a roaring applause from the audience.
“There’s been so much division and I think this song can really bring people together and be proud of who they are,” Guyton previously shared of the track.
Co-written by Guyton alongside Victoria Banks, Emma-Lee and Karen Kosowki, “All American” appears on Guyton’s long-awaited debut album, Remember Her Name, which was released on September 24.
The 2021 American Music Awards also featured performances from Olivia Rodrigo, Bad Bunny with Tainy and Juliete Venegas, Kane Brown, Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood, Zoe Wees, Jennifer Lopez, BTS, Coldplay, Silk Sonic, New Edition, Chlöe, New Kids on the Block, Diplo, Måneskin, Tyler, the Creator, and Walker Hayes.
The awards ceremony also included a star-studded list of presenters, including Machine Gun Kelly, Brandy, Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler, Anthony Ramos, Billy Porter, D-Nice, Drew Lachey, Joey Fatone and Shawn Stockman, JB Smoove, JoJo Siwa, Liza Koshy, Marsai Martin, Madelyn Cline, Michelle Young, and Winnie Harlow.
Sponsored by Xfinity, the 2021 American Music Awards is produced by MRC Live & Alternative and Jesse Collins Entertainment.
