    Bad Bunny Has Tested Positive For COVID-19

    This is why he dialed in to the AMAs.

    Last night, Bad Bunny was supposed to perform at the American Music Awards, but the music star only dialed in to the show remotely to present an award.

    Today, Bad Bunny's publicist shared that the reason he bowed out of taking the stage is that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.
