You may have finally merged with your sofa, but this year’s American Music Awards host Taraji P. . Henson always brought some of the nation’s remaining energy to the AMAs ceremony on Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, starting the evening with a very special dance interpretation by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s « WAP » before their monologue. « I’m so happy to be here, » enthused the actress. « Look, I’m just happy to be off the couch and in a real way. And a deodorant that I think has just expired. ”
« I know you are still home, but tonight? You are at home with me, » enthused the Empire star before calling out all the stars in the house, including Beyoncé and Dolly Parton. Were these « stars » actually cut-outs from cardboard? Absolutely, but Taraji remains committed. The audience also included a (very) socially distant IRL section of groups of people from the same pods who were tested before the show and masked at the event, Henson explained later that night. She concluded her monologue: « It’s been a long year and now that 2020 is drawing to a close, it’s time to remember that we are one country. We have to heal. We need to love each other a little more, and that’s what tonight is about. And what’s better than healing a Weeknd / Kenny G performance?
We’re just hoping to make 2020 a little brighter with our show tonight! ❤️ #AMA’s picture. Twitter. com / qfHrwBxZ8Z
