Billie Eilish, BTS, The Weeknd Live Debut New Songs at AMAs 2020

The broadcast also saw live debuts from Megan Thee Stallion and Katy Perry
This year's American Music Awards were a unique combination of limited and no-audience performances from around the world, a Zoom press room and piped-in acceptance speeches. Since we've been 3/4 of a year without any concerts, we were treated to several live debuts.
Billie Eilish lit up the AMA stage last night with the very first live performance of "Therefore I Am." She performed amongst red lights with her masked up brother, Finneas, on guitar. Peek:

Rising rap star Megan Thee Stallion live debuted her new single "My Body" off her debut album Good News, released just last week.

Katy Perry debuted an acoustic version of "Only Love" with country star Darius Rucker joining. She dedicated the performance, her first since becoming a mama, to her Dad.

The Weeknd performed two songs in a curiously bandaged fashion - "In Your Eyes" with famed saxophonist Kenny G and the live debut of "Save Your Tears."
KPop phenoms BTS closed out the awards show with a performance of "Life Goes On" for the first time, as well as their mega-hit "Dynamite" from an empty stadium in Seoul. Watch:
