Upon receiving the biggest honour of the night and thanking fans for their support, Swift - who recently broke her silence and endorsed Democrats from Tennessee - urged viewers to get involved in politics.

I'm writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I'll be voting in the state of Tennessee.

Swift, who's nominated this evening in a number of categories, opened up the award ceremony with a fiery performance of the Reputation track. But not this time.

Cardi B won the Rap/Hip-Hop Artist gong and thanked her three-month-old daughter, Kulture.

While the Grammy victor has generally stayed out of politics, she broke her silence Sunday to endorse Tennessee Democrats Phil Bredesen and Rep. Jim Cooper running in their Senate and House races respectively. Her name is Claire and she's very pregnant. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I can not support Marsha Blackburn. In the entire month of September, 190,178 people registered to vote.

"And you can go to Vote.org like Taylor Swift told you to".

Watch all the performances below (bare with us as we find all the links). 2009 was a big one for Taylor at the show, as she won Artist of the Year, Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist, Favorite Country Female Artist, Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist AND Favorite Country Album.

Rapper-singer XXXTentacion, who was fatally shot in June, was also honored: He won favorite soul/R&B album for his 2017 debut, "17". He also just received posthumously the Best New Artist Award at the BET Hip-Hop Awards last weekend as well. It takes her AMA tally to 23, beating Whitney Houston's 19 to make her the most successful female artist at the awards.
