“One of the things about this night, the audience comes expecting to see unusual combinations of singers,” Sting said in the press release. “Because I’ve never recorded it, everyone lets their hair down. We raise a good amount of money for what I consider to be an incredibly important cause, but they have one heck of a night.”

VIDEO: Sting Performs Medley of His Hits at AMAs 2016!

Sting was honored at the 2016 American Music Awards and he took to the stage at the show to perform a medley of his hits before accepting the award.

The 65-year-old entertainer was presented with the American Music Award of Merit during the event held at the Microsoft Theatre on Sunday (November 20) in Los Angeles.

“I’m deeply moved by this extravagant gesture, and it’s important for me as a musical migrant to acknowledge the very real debt I already owe to American music because after all American music that lit the musical spark in my mind, this uniquely American experiment by perhaps America’s greatest and most influential export, rock and roll,” Sting said during his speech.

“A giant musical jam session where the doors are always open, open to all comers, and the spirit of welcome and inclusion, the mixing of culture, rhythm and passion is what made this country the greatest country in the world,” he added. “While I may be an Englishman in New York, I promise you that my musical soul is all American.”

Justin Timberlake Explains Why He Was Afraid to Do 'Trolls'

Justin Timberlake is featured in The Hollywood Reporter‘s new songwriters roundtable issue alongside some other big names and he explains why he was initially afraid to do the music for his animated film Trolls.

“I think I was afraid to go into Trolls because I was like, ‘Well, there’s probably going to be more frivolity to it than substance.’ But then I looked at the story and I’m like, ‘Wait, hold on, we have a female protagonist that has a belly, crazy hair,’” Justin said. “‘That’s so important.’ And what a cool way into getting them into the theater — ‘I wanna be like Princess Poppy, not Barbie.’”

Also featured in the issue are Alicia Keys, John Legend, Sting, Pharrell Williams, and Tori Amos.

Sting Reopens Bataclan With First Performance Since Deadly Paris Attacks

Sting helped reopen the Bataclan music venue – which has been close because of the deadly 2015 Paris attacks – with a concert on Saturday night (November 12) in Paris, France.

The 65-year-old musician performed new songs off of his latest album – 57th & 9th – for the survivors of the attacks and their families, along with almost 1,000 other guests.

Back in November of 2015, a coordinated terrorist attack took place in Paris where over 130 people were killed and countless others were injured. The Bataclan was one of the places target during the attack, which has remained close until tonight.

During the performance, Sting spoke in French to the audience about remembering those who lost their lives during the tragedy.

“Tonight we have two important tasks. First remember and honor those who lost their lives in the attacks a year ago,” Sting said. “And second, to celebrate life and music in this historic venue. So before I begin I would like to start with a minute of silence. We will not forget them.”

Sting also dedicated his hit song “50,000″ to Lemmy, Motorhead‘s frontman, Leonard Cohen, and the Eagle‘s Glenn Frey – all of whom died in the the past year.

Sting took to his Instagram to share his speech and a pic of the concert.
