The American Music Awards hold a special place in Jennifer Lopez's heart — and it's not just because she's announcing new music at tonight's show.

Back in 2015, she not only hosted the AMAs, but she pulled off the most mind-boggling medley performance to boot (complete with skin-tight costumes, because J. Lo).

She's hardly stopped moving since, what with her Vegas residency, which just wrapped up, as well as her show Shades of Blue, her judging gig on World of Dance and the whole power couple thing with Alex Rodriguez.

As she hit the red carpet in Los Angeles on Oct. 9, the 49-year-old was looking like a real life American princess in a caped hot pink gown. A pair of black stacked platform stilettos topped off the Barbie-goes-to-the-red-carpet look.

She'll also be hitting the stage this evening, so stay tuned for an outfit change. We're on the edge of our seats.
