On top of her successful music career, she knows how to bring the red carpet glamour.

And Sunday night was no different for British pop star Ellie Goulding who put her toned midriff on display at the American Music Awards 2022.

Posing ahead of the star-studded event at The Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, the singer, 35, commanded attention in a sparkling silver crop top and midi skirt.

The blonde beauty beamed for the cameras wearing the eye-catching outfit, with the tiny crop top and skirt co-ord matching with their metallic dotted pattern.

Her top had one shoulder and one halterneck panel with matching detached sleeves and a choker, while the bottom half was kept more simple.

She shined in the lights as the sparkly material shone with the camera flashes.

Her shoes were perfectly matched – she slipped her feet into a pair of silver strappy heeled sandals, adding some height to her frame.

To accessorise, Ellie wore a variety of silver rings and adorned her ears with jewellery.

Several diamond drop earrings and hoops framed her face, in which she wore a full look of makeup.

Adding a quirky touch to her smokey look, the 35-year-old singer added a silver dot below each eye to add even more sparkle.

Drake, Beyonce and Swift also are in the running for artist of the year and received six nominations each.

The nominations are based on performances on the Billboard music charts, streaming and album sales, radio play and social media engagement. 

Winners will be determined by fan votes and announced at the ceremony at Microsoft Theater at L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles.

Bad Bunny’s other nods included favorite male pop artist, favorite music video and favorite touring artist.

The singer set a record this year for the highest-grossing tour by a Latin artist in history. His album ‘Un Verano Sin Ti’ just topped the Billboard charts for a 13th week.

If Bad Bunny wins all eight awards he is eligible for, he would tie 1980s superstars Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston for the most AMA wins in a single year.

Organizers added a category this year for favorite K-pop artist. Contenders are BTS, BLACKPINK, SEVENTEEN, Tomorrow X Together and Twice.  

First-time AMA nominees included rapper Jack Harlow, K-pop band BLACKPINK and Scandinavian DJ group Swedish House Mafia.

In country music categories, Chris Stapleton, Luke Combs and Morgan Wallen are among the nominees for favorite male country artist.

Carrie Underwood, Maren Morris and Miranda Lambert will compete for favorite female country artist. 

Ellie’s appearance in LA comes after she reportedly ‘set up a Raya account’ to look for new celebrity friends within the industry. 

The 35-year-old has joined the celebrity dating app – despite being married to Caspar Jopling – but is said to be searching for some new pals.

The All By Myself hitmaker, who shares 18-month-old son Arthur with Caspar, has set up the account with her real name Elena and it features photos from her Instagram page.

An insider told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: ‘Ellie is happily married to Caspar Jopling but she kept her Raya profile open to connect with interesting people.

‘She makes it clear that her profile is only for mates as she includes the tag line, ‘Here just for friends’, so it’s nothing untoward.’
