Taylor Swift breaks record for most AMA wins by female artist

They were among the winners as a politically charged American Music Awards kicked off in Los Angeles on Tuesday evening.

At tonight's American Music Awards, the fans voted, the host danced, and there were plenty of moments that you'll hear about tomorrow morning. "The midterm elections on November 6", Swift said after collecting the award for Artist of the Year.

Swift also opened Tuesday nifht's ceremony at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles with a performance of I Did Something Bad off of her album, Reputation. But not this time.

"Cardi walked away with three awards, two for her solo work and one for her song-saving verse on Bruno Mars" "Finesse" remix. She posted support on her Instagram page - with its 112 million followers - for Senate candidate Phil Bredesen and U.S. House candidate Jim Cooper. She also condemned Republican senatorial candidate Marsha Blackburn for her voting record on women's rights and equal marriage.

Kay Ivey issued a state of emergency in anticipation of widespread power outages , wind damage and debris produced by high winds. Forecasters said Michael could cause a storm surge of up to 12 feet (3.7 meters) above normal sea water levels in Florida.

"Every award was voted on by the people", Swift said of the AMAs. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. Go to and you can find all the info. As of now, the show has yet to announce whether she won a 23rd in the favourite female artist - pop/rock category.

Late rapper, XXXTentacion, who was shot and killed in June aged 20, won a posthumous award. Gladys Knight, Ledisi, Mary Mary, Donnie McClurkin and CeCe Winans were among the musicians who paid tribute to the Queen of Soul's gospel roots and her iconic album, Amazing Grace.

Cabello's Havana took Pop/Rock Song and Underwood was recognised as the favourite Country Female Artist.

The 2018 American Music Awards are nearly upon us, and ABC has assembled a surprisingly diverse crop of personalities to help us prepare for the big night.
