  • Taylor Swift sets new American Music Award record, urges people to vote

Taylor Swift kicked off the 2018 American Music Awards, marking her first awards show performance in three years.

A triumphant Taylor Swift urged people to vote in November's USA midterm elections as she swept the board at the American Music Awards (AMAs). "This award and every single award given out tonight is voted on by the people". She urged her fans to get educated on the candidates for their states, then get out and vote, as well.

During the low-rated show, Taylor Swift - who recently broke her longtime political silence by slamming Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn - urged fans to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.

She added that the awards represented "encouragement and motivation to be better and work harder".

On Tuesday, the "Fearless" singer told the American Music Awards audience in Los Angeles and millions watching at home to go and vote.

Cardi's husband Offset also had reason to celebrate as his group Migos was named Favorite Pop/Rock Duo or Group.
