Taylor Swift sets new American Music Award record, urges people to vote

Thomas Rhett attends the 2018 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on October 9, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. She encouraged everyone to get out and vote this midterm election cycle.

"This time it represents encouragement and motivation for me to be better, work harder and make you guys proud as much as I possibly can ... so thank you for this incredible symbol of encouragement", the Grammy-winner said".

It marked Swift's first live awards show performance in three years. If you believe in equality for women, for people of colour, for the LGBTQ community.

The singer, who opened the ceremony with a performance of I Did Something Bad, beat Drake, Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons and Post Malone to win the top prize.

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

Shortly after her explosive performance, Swift won the AMA for Best Tour. Her awards also led her to become the most decorated female artist at the AMAs, with 22 trophies.

There were some moments, including comedian Billy Eichner going off script to urge people to vote and XXXTentacion's mother, Cleopatra Bernard, accepting the award for favorite soul/R&B album for her late son.

This was not only the group's first American Music Award nomination, but it is also now their first award from this show.

The performance climaxed with the witch-burning finale, as Swift riled up the crowd with her "light me up" chant. She also condemned Republican senatorial candidate Marsha Blackburn for her voting record on women's rights and equal marriage.

Migos were acknowledged as the favourite duo in the Pop/Rock category, while Mendes won the Adult Contemporary Artist.

Legendary singer Aretha Franklin, who died of pancreatic cancer in August, was honored with a gospel tribute that closed out the show.
