Swift opened the 2018 American Music Awards with the first televised performance of "I Did Something Bad".

Taylor Swift has kicked off her week with a rare political post on social media, and at the American Music Awards she continued the conversation by encouraging fans to vote in the upcoming midterm elections. "And you know what else is voted on by the people is the midterm elections on November 6. Get out and vote", Swift said when accepting her trophy.

"I'm so nervous, you guys", Cleopatra Bernard said as she took the stage to accept the award on her son's behalf. If you believe in equality for women, for people of colour, for the LGBTQ community.

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. It's the midterm elections on November 6.

The singer racked up wins for favourite pop/rock album for "reputation", tour of the year, and artist of the year. "But I have to be really honest with you about something: I'm even more excited about the next chapter".

The performance marked her first awards show performance in three years and comes days after Swift broke her long-standing refusal to discuss politics in a lengthy Instagram post.

Below is all the information you need to watch American Music Awards online and live Tuesday to see one of music's biggest awards shows. As of now, the show has yet to announce whether she won a 23rd in the favourite female artist - pop/rock category.

The American Music Awards isn't the only award X has received recently either. The song is rumored to be about Kanye West or Calvin Harris, and amounts to Swift's insistence that she's not anxious about the consequences of her actions in this particular fantasy - especially since she thinks they're warranted.
