The performance, which was a tribute to the first responders who had worked at various natural disasters, shootings, and other tragedies over the past year, got a standing ovation from the audience.

Together they belted out the 1992 hit, which urges the listener to "hang on" in the face of darkness and despair, as a tribute to everyone affected by all of the difficulties and tragedies.

"This year - perhaps more than any other in recent history - we needed music to help us escape the news of the day". "We needed that power of music to help us heal, form hurricanes, wild fires, hate, hatred fueled violence", he said.

The American Music Awards is happening right now, honoring some of the biggest names in music and putting on some incredible performances in between. "And these moments of crisis, heroes emerge".

'This is by far the craziest, most insane thing I've ever attempted to do, ' she added. "For, even as we mourn those who were lost, we know this: Together our strength will pull us through".

"This woman has a direct line to outer space with that voice", P!nk tweeted before the show. "I feel the fear this time", Pink said as she was shown practicing her aerial dance moves. Pink posted a video to her Instagram account earlier in the week expressing her fears over the gravity-defying performance. It's been a tough year, no doubt, but one constant has been these two wildly talented moms sharing their lives with their kids for us to smile at and now, we got the early Christmas gift of hearing them sing together.
