Pink & Ciara Did Not Shade Christina Aguilera’s AMAs Performance

The 2017 AMAs Winners' List
We round up all the winners at the 2017 American Music Awards in Los Angeles.

A picture of Pink reacting to Christina Aguilera’s performance at last night’s (November 19) American Music Awards went viral on social media. Fans interpreted her grimace-like expression as shade, but the Beautiful Trauma singer jumped on Twitter to explain that she was just emotional. “Christina fucking killed it tonight for one of our favorite singers ever,” the 38-year-old wrote. “This about Whitney, and I am in awe of Christina’s talent. Show the clip where I’m in tears, you negative Nancys.”

It didn’t end there. Another unfavorable reaction, this time a video of Ciara apparently mouthing “she did ok,” also gained traction. However, it simply didn’t happen. “Sadly, people relish in negativity,” CiCi responded to a fan, who pointed out that she appeared to be saying “so good.” “You are correct about the words I said as I was standing clapping my hands after Christina’s performance. She’s one of the best singers of our time.” The “I Bet” hitmaker then added: “Goodnight Everyone. Let’s Spread Love and Only Love.” See the tweets below.
