Shania Twain Performs a Medley of Her Hits at American Music Awards

Shania Twain brought some 90's nostalgia to this year's American Music Awards (AMA) broadcast, hosted Sun., Nov. 24 at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater, after paying tribute to everyone from Post Malone to Drake.

Twain's show-closing medley began with a brief detour into more recent music scenes, featuring unlikely (and unbelievably good) nods to Post Malone's "Rockstar," Twenty One Pilots' "Stressed Out," Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" and Drake's "God's Plan." Those surprises built up to a more likely song, Twain's own "You're Still the One." Shirtless cowboys and androgynous nods to Twain's Robert Palmer-honoring past hit the stage for a lively string of career-defining numbers: "Any Man of Mine," "That Don't Impress Me Much" and "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!" Throw in a light-up staircase, and you've got a prime-time television preview of Twain's Las Vegas residency.

Per a press release from Dick Clark Productions, Twain's medley of her greatest hits marked her first time back on the AMA stage since 2003.

Twain's credentials as the Queen of Country Pop include five Grammy awards, two CMA awards, a CMT Artist of a Lifetime Award and the Icon Award she recently received at Billboard's Women in Music ceremony. She's also the top-selling female country artist of all time, with more than 90 million albums sold worldwide--crazy numbers with or without that "female artist" qualifier.

As for Twain's future plans, she kicks off Let's Go! The Vegas Residency on Fri., Dec. 6 at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
