Taylor Swift performs, Cardi B wins at American Music Awards

10 October 2018

"I just wanted to say I'm going to be opening up the American Music Awards with a performance", she wrote.

Taylor Swift's political awakening was front and centre at the American Music Awards on Tuesday, where she also swept up big.

The show aired Tuesday on ABC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. She encouraged everyone to get out and vote this midterm election cycle.

Accepting the artist of the year prize on stage, Swift said: "I just want to say to the fans, you have been so nice to me and fun and amusing and so cool and so loyal, and it's not lost on me, I understand how lucky I am".

Taylor Swift won Artist of the Year. The wins brought her lifetime total so far to 22, surpassing the previous record of 21 held by the late Whitney Houston. So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count.

Scientist: Tuesday, October 8, meteor shower Draconid will be the most active
You can start looking for the Draconids in the sky from 21:00, but the chances to see the lovely show increase after midnight. The Draconids are best seen in the evening hours when the skies are darkening enough to pick out individual meteors.

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

The American Music Awards isn't the only award X has received recently either.

She went on to win awards at the show in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, but was left out of the nominations in 2016 and 2017.

Swift was nominated for the top prize - artist of the year - where she competed with Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons, Post Malone and Drake, who tied with Cardi B for most nominations with eight. She also condemned Republican senatorial candidate Marsha Blackburn for her voting record on women's rights and equal marriage. The show will also pay tribute to Aretha Franklin. BTS has been announced as the victor of the Favorite Social Artist category! The gospel production featured Gladys Knight, Ledisi, Mary Mary, Donnie McClurkin and CeCe Winans. She had told Billboard earlier this week that she was "so grateful" for Swift's comments.
