After accepting three trophies at Tuesday's AMAs ceremony - for Artist of the Year, Best Pop/Rock Album, and Best Tour - Swift's grand total of AMAs is now 22, besting the late Whitney Houston's record of 21.

XXXTentacion's mother was at the American Music Awards to accept the award for "Favorite Soul/R&B Album" on her son's behalf. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent.

Swift, departing from her apolitical public stance, declared in an Instagram post on Sunday her support for Democratic Senate candidate Phil Bredesen over Republican Marsha Blackburn in the Tennessee race for retiring Sen.

Billy Eichner, right, got political as he presented the award for favourite adult contemporary artist with Kathryn Hahn.

Jennifer Lopez did double duty, both singing and reminding us that she's also an actress. If you believe in equality for women, for people of colour, for the LGBTQ community. "Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values", she finished.

When you are a diva who has been in the game for a minute, you don't need to dance around. In the rap/hip-hop and pop/rock categories, Drake was up for favourite male artist, favourite album and favourite song with "God's Plan".

Legendary singer Aretha Franklin, who died of pancreatic cancer in August, was honored with a gospel tribute that closed out the show.

Swift's four prizes have made her the most decorated woman in American Music Awards history. That award went to Miami native Camila Cabello. On tour, she performs the song with a drawn-out introduction, and Swift opted for that same arrangement on the AMA stage, even pausing for dramatic effect after the venomous lyric "if a man talks shit then I owe him nothing".
