Taylor Swift gets political at awards

Taylor Swift exhorted Americans to "get out and vote" in the forthcoming United States midterm elections as she broke Whitney Houston's record as the woman to have won the most American Music Awards.

"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".

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".

He told the audience they should register to vote if they cared for "equality for women, for people of colour, for the LGBTQ community, if you believe that climate change is real".

So many of pop's top artists are nominated this year, including Taylor Swift, who hit the red carpet in a silver mini-dress-as well as Ed Sheeran, BTS, Camila Cabello and Drake.

The American Music Awards isn't the only award X has received recently either. "Thank you guys so much, I appreciate it", she concluded while two guys stood on each side of her.

Before they handed out the award for the year's Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist, Billy Eichner and Kathryn Hahn made a plea to viewers: vote.

Her endorsements correlated with a spike in voter registration - likely also prompted by a looming voter registration deadline - and Bredesen said he was honoured to have her support. "I'm even more excited about the next chapter". For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway. Other performers include Cardi B with Bad Bunny and J Balvin, Mariah Carey, Carrie Underwood, twenty one pilots and Jennifer Lopez.

There was also a tribute to the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, who died in August.

Post Malone, who wore a baby blue suit and performed, won favorite pop/rock male artist, Underwood was named favorite country female artist and Khalid picked up favorite soul/R&B male artist.
