After getting political in an Instagram post over the weekend, Taylor used her acceptance speech for Artist of the Year to encourage people to vote. "Not just because she's my daughter, but while I was pregnant, I was just so influenced to be like, 'Yo, I gotta do this!' I had to prove people wrong, 'cause they said I wasn't gonna make it after I had a baby". If you believe in equality for women, for people of colour, for the LGBTQ community. The midterm elections on November 6 - get out and vote.

Taylor Swift took home four trophies at Tuesday night's American Music Awards (AMAs), breaking the record for the most AMAs won by a female artist.

In a rare moment for the usually apolitical star, Swift publicly declared her support for Tennessean Democrats Phil Bredesen and Jim Cooper in the midterm elections, and stated her opposition to Republican Marsha Blackburn.

The 49-year-old entertainer showed off some major skin in a flowing pink gown and sky-high black heels as she stepped out for the awards show.

Cardi B had a big night at the 2018 American Music Awards on Tuesday! He won the Best male artist (pop/rock) at the American Music Awards.

Migos were acknowledged as the favourite duo in the pop/rock category, Mendes won the adult contemporary artist, Cabello's Havana took pop/rock song and Underwood was recognised as the favourite country music female.

Mariah Carey, who has 21 AMAs to her name, hit the stage with a performance of her new single, "With You", which featured shirtless dancers popping out of her dress like real divas do.

Swift is nominated for artist of the year, tour of the year, favorite pop/rock female artist and favorite pop/rock album with "reputation".

"I would like to thank the AMAs, his fans and to everyone who made this possible", she said as she fought back tears.

'And I think something that came out of it that was good is that I learned a really important lesson that I've been telling you from the stage for about 10 years, but I never had to learn it so harshly myself - and that lesson has to do with how much you value your reputation'. Additionally, several of gospel and R&B's heaviest hitters will assemble for what's sure to be a touching Aretha Franklin tribute.
