BTS Crowned Winner Of Favorite Social Artist At 2018 American Music Awards

Dressed in a sparkly black leotard and thigh-high boots, the 28-year-old singer performed I Did Something Bad from her 2017 album Reputation, on a set adorned by a huge mechanical cobra and red smoke.

Swift is nominated for the top prize - artist of the year - where she will compete with Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons, Post Malone and Drake, who ties with Cardi B for most nominations with eight.

The American Music Awards, the world's largest fan-voted award show, features performances from today's hottest artists and presents fan-voted awards in the music genres of Pop/Rock, Alternative Rock, Country, Rap/Hip-Hop, Soul/R&B, Adult Contemporary, Contemporary Inspirational, Latin, EDM and Soundtrack, and the categories of Artist of the Year, New Artist of the Year presented by Capital One Savor Card, Collaboration of the Year, Tour of The Year, Favorite Social Artist presented by Xfinity and Favorite Music Video.

The singer echoed her own political Instagram post and said, "And you know what else is voted on by the people is the midterm elections on November 6".

The daughter of immigrants from India, Mrs Haley was a frequent critic of Mr Trump during his election campaign. She praised both Kushner and Ivanka Trump in glowing terms for their assistance in diplomacy and world affairs.

Swift said that although she would like to continue supporting female politicians, she came out against incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn whose voting record, Swift said, "appalls and terrifies" her. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape.

"This award and every single award given out tonight were voted on by the people, and you know what else is voted on by the people", she said, "The midterm elections on November 6". "These are not MY Tennessee values", Swift wrote. She also believes they should not have the right to marry.

Even though Taylor's album, Reputation, came out nearly a year ago, this is the first time she's performed one of the record's songs on an award show.

The live show in Los Angeles will also feature performances by Cardi B, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Shawn Mendes and a pregnant Carrie Underwood, as well as a tribute led by Gladys Knight to Aretha Franklin, who died of cancer in August at age 76.
