Ella Mai Gives Soulful Performance Of 'Boo'd Up' at 2018 American Music Awards: Watch

Tuesday (Oct. 9) night on the American Music Awards, Ella Mai gave her second-ever awards show performance (following the BET Awards in June) by delivering a fun-filled and soulful performance of breakout hit "Boo'd Up."

"I need everyone on their feet," the 23-year-old requested while walking down the aisle among the audience. Mai, who is up for Favorite Female Artist -- Soul/R&B and Favorite Song -- Soul/R&B, couldn't help but smile through the song. 

Meanwhile, in the crowd, Khalid (who has a brief cameo in a go-kart in the track's music video) was seen grooving from his seat, while 21 Savage was spotted subtly singing along to every word. 

Watch the performance above.
