Jay Pharaoh must be doing the Rocky training montage right now to prepare for this month’s American Music Awards. What’s the Rocky montage for impressionists? Impersonating every element of the Rocky training montage, including, like, the steps? According to Billboard, the former SNL star and Gigi Hadid will be co-hosting the AMAs on November 20. The show has already announced performances from the Weeknd, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, John Legend, Lady Gaga, Green Day, and Bruno Mars, among others. Hmmm, let’s see.
