Annie Lennox wowed an audience at the American Music Awards with an emotionally-charged performance - just three months after undergoing spinal surgery.

Lennox was ordered to endure six months of physiotherapy before doctors expected her to walk properly again - after determining she was suffering from an impinged nerve in August.

Lennox's contributions to music were marked before her rousing performance on Sunday - when she was presented with the Award of Merit at the 36th annual AMAs in Los Angeles - lifting the star-studded audience to their feet.

Standing to take a bow, she was presented the award by pop superstar Justin Timberlake. -Wenn
