Swift's performance at L.A.'s Microsoft Theater marked her return to an awards show stage slot after a three-year absence.

"This time it represents encouragement and motivation for me to be better, work harder and make you guys proud as much as I possibly can so thank you for this incredible symbol of encouragement.", she said after picking up the night's biggest prize.

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". The pop star also continued to use her superstar platform to remind everyone to get out and vote.

Their feud has grown worse over the years, and Taylor later went on to release her album Reputation, which changed her exterior entirely - and there were major digs at Kim and Kanye throughout the tracks. Tay has never been vocal about politics, but she broke her silence on the topic on October 7, when she revealed why she'll be voting for Tennessee's Democratic candidates for Senate and the House of Representatives at the midterm elections on November 6.
