It’s been a wild ride at the AMAs tonight, with heartfelt tributes from P!nk and Kelly Clarkson, an intense performance by (a newly blonde!) Selena Gomez, and death-defying, dazzling aerials from P!nk. As the evening’s host, Tracee Ellis Ross aimed to kick it all off with a bang, and boy did she ever, thanks to one *VERY* unusual dress.

Though she’s undergone several outfit changes since, we can’t get over the gold Ronald van der Kemp masterpiece she donned for her opening number.

How do we even begin to describe the extravaganza of a gown? The tiered skirt, ruffled sleeve, and circular-shaped neckline (can we even call that?) of the metallic, foiled frock had us in complete awe. That structure! That shine!

Twitter didn’t quite know WHAT to make of the unusual gown, comparing it to everything from nature’s finest to a shiny gold chocolate wrapper.

Regardless of WHAT it looked like, however, most agreed that it was fierce AF.

Slay, woman. Slay!
