On Tuesday, the Fearless singer told the American Music Awards audience in Los Angeles and millions watching at home to go and vote. If you believe in equality for women, for people of colour, for the LGBTQ community.

Swift kicked off the AMAs with a performance of I Did Something Bad, while Cardi B picked up the night's first award, favourite hip-hop/rap artist, which she dedicated to her daughter. A salute to Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin will include Gladys Knight, Ledisi and CeCe Winans, and with a movie bio-pic soon to open, Queen will be remembered with a rendition of "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Panic!

Taylor Swift, straight off a controversial dive into USA politics, was the big victor at the American Music Awards on Tuesday where she used her platform to again urge her fans to get out and vote. Her awards also led her to become the most decorated female artist at the AMAs, with 22 trophies.
