Democrat-Backing Taylor Swift Stays Political At American Music Awards

During one of her acceptance speeches, Swift thanked her fans.

The American Music Awards isn't the only award X has received recently either. "Go to like Taylor Swift told you to", he said before handing a trophy to Shawn Mendes.

It was also a night of firsts for a handful of artists.

X's posthumous album "17" was released on August 25, 2017.

Ousted Guardians of the Galaxy director switches camps, tied to new DC Comics film
Suicide Squad , which starred Margot Robbie was a commercial success, despite being a critical failure. Since Gunn's firing, the status of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 remains unclear.

And as always, the ceremony boasted a slew of stellar musical performances.

Like Cardi B's performance, rising newcomer Ella Mai also won over the crowd when she sang the year's biggest R&B hit, "Boo'd Up, " starting the performance as she walked down the aisle of the Microsoft Theater. The three turned the stage into a colorful fiesta. Hudgens filmed the movie Second Act with singer-actress Jennifer Lopez and, at the award show, Lopez debuted a new song from the film's soundtrack. Mariah Carey sang her new song "With You" dressed in a form-fitting pink gown and surrounded by male dancers. A special tribute to Aretha Franklin is included, as is some early promotion for the upcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. She encouraged everyone to get out and vote this midterm election cycle. "Not just because she's my daughter, but while I was pregnant, I was just so influenced to be like, 'Yo, I gotta do this!' I had to prove people wrong, 'cause they said I wasn't gonna make it after I had a baby".

Swift had announced on Sunday that she was voting for Tennessee's Democratic Senate candidate Phil Bredesen, breaking her long-standing refusal to discuss anything politics.

Taylor Swift, straight off a controversial dive into USA politics, was the big victor at the American Music Awards on Tuesday where she used her platform to again urge her fans to get out and vote.
