Camila Cabello delivered not one but two fantastic performances at the 2019 American Music Awards -- and the second one had her literally grazing clouds with her high notes.  

After steaming things up with Shawn Mendes with "Señorita" and accepting the award for favorite collaboration beside him earlier in the evening, Cabello made a quick change into an all-white lingerie ensemble to take the stage. Her dancers followed suit, and joined her in a cube constructed of shape-shifting LED panels that brought Cabello and Co. from one heavenly scene to a fiery inferno. 

She drops a few "Hallelujah!"-es in the track itself, but she and her dancers embraced the angelic aesthetic as they floated through a modern routine with rolling clouds as their backdrop. The scenery transformed as Cabello hit the highest reaches of her vocal register on the chorus, and the clouds gave way to walls of blossoms and a green meadow.

Eventually, the flowers caught fire, and she wrapped up the song as flames licked the walls of the cube closing in around her. 

Hours before the AMAS, Cabello dropped the video for "Living Proof," which features her romantically lounging in a meadow, surrounded by gorgeous florals.
