Katy Perry’s performance at AMA 2020 is definitely the one to remember, as it is her first time performing on stage after giving birth to her daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom.
Katy sang a duo with Darius Rucker of her version of the song ‘Only Love’ in a worldwide premiere at AMA 2020. Katy Perry’s performance at AMA comes 7 years after her 2013 performance and 10 years after her first performance at the award show where she performed her hit song ‘Firework’. She performed ‘Only Love’ in accordance with the protocols of COVID-19 on a socially-distanced stage with R&B singer, Darius Rucker.
Before arriving at AMA 2020, Katy Perry declared on her Instagram that her performance is dedicated to one person, her father, Keith Hudson. She uploaded an old pic of her father holding Katy Perry when she was just a baby, she captioned the pic saying “tonight’s @amas performance is for my father”
Ama 2020’s host Taraji P. Henson, introduced Katy Perry by remembering the influence her songs have had on fans. “She taught us how to be a firework and shine, you know I love when we shine, baby, shine. She’s invited one of her very favorite singers to join her in a very special duet that she has created just for us.”
“It asks the question, if you had one day left to live, what would you do with it? What would you do if you had nothing to lose?” Henson continued. “Please welcome Katy Perry and Darius Rucker, reimagining Katy’s new song, ‘Only Love.’”
Darius Rucker had given a sneak peek of their stage on his Twitter before the AMAs began, “Excited to share that I’ll be joining @KatyPerry for a special performance of #OnlyLove on the @AMAs, TONIGHT at 8/7c on ABC! #AMAs”
“They do say that when you meet your wife or your soulmate or your partner, whatever you want to say, that you think that they’re perfect and they’re everything…and that quickly fades away, right?” Katy Perry had stated in an interview about her partner Orlando Bloom and their daughter Daisy Dove Bloom. “When you meet your daughter that’s when you’ve met the love of your life.”
