Taylor Swift triumphs at political American Music Awards

"Black-ish" star Tracee Ellis Ross will host the AMAs, which air live on ABC at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT.

Swift went on to say that she will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives, and encouraged followers to register to vote.

Below, check out photos from the 2018 American Music Awards red carpet. BTS has been announced as the victor of the Favorite Social Artist category! Despite having the year's top-selling album and three No. 1 hits, Drake didn't win a single award. On tour, she performs the song with a drawn-out introduction, and Swift opted for that same arrangement on the AMA stage, even pausing for dramatic effect after the venomous lyric "if a man talks shit then I owe him nothing". And later, Billy Eichner implored young people who believe in "equality for women, for people of color, for the LGBTQ community" and who "believe climate change is real" to vote in "the biggest election of our lifetime", while he and Kathryn Hahn presented an award.

Swift said that although she would like to continue supporting female politicians, she came out against incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn whose voting record, Swift said, "appalls and terrifies" her.

'She voted against equal pay for women.

Taylor Swift is breaking records. In her photo caption, she admitted that she has been "reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now". She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. "I gotta prove people wrong". She also believes they should not have the right to marry.

Late rapper, XXXTentacion, who was gunned down in June aged 20, won a posthumous award. It was days after he was named best new artist at the BET Hip-Hop Awards.

There was also a tribute to the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, who died in August. Other performers included Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Missy Elliott.
