Carrie Underwood wins favorite female country artist at American Music Awards

Mariah Carey performs onstage during the 2018 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on Oct. 9 2018 in Los Angeles Calif

I have an incredible team of people who make my universe go round, so thank you so much. The pop star also continued to use her superstar platform to remind everyone to get out and vote. It's the midterm elections on November 6.

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.

Those last three sentences were a nod to Swift's October 7 Instagram post, when she broke her political silence (a silence that had long drawn criticism from the left, and even had some pundits speculating that she was a Trump supporter) with a strongly worded statement about the upcoming midterm elections and specifically her opposition to Marsha Blackburn, the current Republican representative for Tennessee's 7th Congressional District.

The singer, who picked up four gongs - taking her total tally to 23, breaking Whitney Houston's record for the most won by a woman at the event - raised the issue once again following an Instagram post on Sunday announcing she will be voting Democrat.

It was also a big night for Swift's tour mate, Camilla Cabello, who took home Favorite Pop/Rock Song, Video, and Collaboration for Havana, her track with Young Thug, and Favorite New Artist of the Year.

Taylor directly addressed the use of the reptiles earlier this year, revealing they were a symbol of standing up to online bullies - namely Kim Kardashian, who called her a snake following the infamous phone call with Kanye West.

Explaining her decision to wear the slinky number to the AMAs, Hudgens told Entertainment Tonight, "It's classic, it's chic, and I'm here for J.Lo, so I figured that was the way to go".

Carrie Underwood was in flawless form vocally, and Camila Cabello - who won new artist of the year - gave a touching and vocally impressive performance of the ballad Consequences, earning her a standing ovation.

With the release of her recent album, Reputation, she made it clear that she was in for some prominent changes - and not just in her music.

After Kanye stole Taylor's speech when she won Best Music Video, telling the crowd that he thinks Beyoncé was the true victor, the pair haven't liked each other.
