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. Get out and vote", Swift said when accepting her trophy.

Cardi B brought the party to the AMAs. BTS has been announced as the victor of the Favorite Social Artist category! Additionally, several of gospel and R&B's heaviest hitters will assemble for what's sure to be a touching Aretha Franklin tribute. BTS was previously announced as one of the nominees for Favorite Social Artist.
