Have you ever heard a more lovely voice? Shania Twain completely rocked the stage at the 2019 American Music Awards on Sunday, November 24. As usual, Shania, 54, had the audience singing along when she took the AMAs stage for her moment in the spotlight.
As for the performance itself, Shania sang a medley of her greatest hits — but not before she highlighted other artists like Drake and Taylor Swift. Then it was time to take a trip down memory lane with “Still the One,” “Any Man of Mine,” “That Don’t Impress Me Much” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” It was a wild time and, as the confetti fell, it was clear there was nobody more worthy to close the show than Shania.
Shania once confided to Andy Cohen about a very embarrassing onstage moment when she actually peed her pants while performing. “I was very clever in this one moment. I stood up from my chair to get up and sing. I peed myself, and the puddle, I just knocked my glass of water over. I was wearing a skirt, thank goodness. I stood up, it all came out, I was dry,” she explained.
Shania had one more funny story to tell Andy on Watch What Happens Live. The “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” singer went on to then talk about the time she accidentally got locked out of her hotel room. The most important fact from her story? That she was naked.
“I was in Rome with my husband,” Shania explained. “I get out of bed. I went to bed naked that night, and I had to go for a pee and I opened up the wrong door and I ended up in the hallway.” Who would’ve thought she had so many relatable moments in her life?!
Before performing, Shania tries to get her head in the game to make the show go smoothly. “I suffer a lot from stage fright,” the “From This Moment” singer confessed on Live With Kelly and Ryan. “And the only way to manage it is to be able to be prepared.”
Due to her anxiety, Shania only feels comfortable taking the stage when she is absolutely prepared. So, before a show, she would take two full hours to get herself ready. “Everything I eat, everything I drink, I’m very methodical about the course of the day and then I’m OK,” Shania explained. “It’s like preparing for an exam. Every show is like an exam. I gotta get out there and do my best.”
Whatever she does to get pumped up, it works! Just look at this performance as all the proof you need of her artistry.
