Swift used her acceptance speech for artist of the year to encourage her fans to vote.

She concluded her speech: "Thank you guys so much I appreciate it". To say it goes off is an understatement.

After going in-depth about her own personal political beliefs for the first time, Swift then went on to condemn the Trump-backed Marsha Blackburn and reveal who she'll be voting for on November 6.

The singer made her first awards show performance at the AMAs in three years with "I Did Something Bad".

Other performances included Cardi B with Bad Bunny and J Balvin, Mariah Carey, Carrie Underwood, twenty one pilots and Jennifer Lopez.

"I'm so nervous, you guys", Cleopatra Bernard said as she took the stage to accept the award on her son's behalf.

She also picked up three other awards, for best female pop artist, best tour, and best pop album for "reputation", the biggest seller of 2017. He did not attend the show but tied Cardi B with most nominations walking into the AMAs. BTS has been announced as the victor of the Favorite Social Artist category! The song is from her top-selling "reputation" album.

Late rapper, XXXTentacion, who was shot and killed in June aged 20, won a posthumous award. He also just received posthumously the Best New Artist Award at the BET Hip-Hop Awards last weekend as well.

The Queen of Soul was remembered with a performance by Gladys Knight, Ledisi, Mary Mary, Donnie McClurkin and CeCe Winans. The musicians paid tribute to her gospel roots and her iconic album, Amazing Grace. She had told Billboard earlier this week that she was "so grateful" for Swift's comments.
