Shania Twain sure knows how to put on an incredible show!

The iconic singer, 54, lit up the stage at the 2019 American Music Awards on Sunday with a phenomenal medley performance of her all-time greatest hits: “Still the one,” “Any Man of Mine,” “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman.”

The performance opened with Twain singing acoustic versions of popular songs from the past few years, including Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” and Post Malone’s “Wow,” as she sat on the stage playing a bedazzled pink guitar.

As the stage lights turned on, the singer stood up to reveal her full outfit — a neon pink cape with full sleeves and an embellished orange bodice underneath, teamed with black booties, fishnet tights and a pink choker necklace.

She transitioned into her heartfelt country classic, “Still the One,” before picking up the pace with “Any Man of Mine,” as male dancers wearing cheetah print vests, black jeans, black cowboy boots and colorful choker necklaces filled the stage.

The country music legend then brought the entire crowd — including famous audience members like Malone, Swift and Patrick Starrr — to their feet as she started singing “That Don’t Impress Me Much” and closed the show with the ultimate dance number: “Man! I Feel Like a Woman.”
