Swift used her acceptance speech for artist of the year to encourage her fans to vote. "I just wanted to say I'm going to be opening up the American Music Awards with a performance", she wrote. "Don't let people tell you your vote doesn't count. Get out and vote - I love you guys".

After her win, Cardi B remains on stage dancing around and waving her hands up in the air and reaching down in to the crowd shaking hands and saying hello.

Lopez began with a poem by writer Jasmin Kuar, which read: "Scream so that one day a hundred years from now another sister will not have to dry her tears wondering where in history she lost her voice".

Some of music's biggest stars were all under the same Microsoft Theater roof on Tuesday (Oct. 9) night for the 46th American Music Awards.

Taylor Swift will open the show - her first awards show performance in almost three years.

Another week, another music awards show. She also won Artist of the Year for the fourth time, taking her total to 23 and making her the female artist with the most AMA wins, tying with Alabama for second overall. In her photo caption, she admitted that she has been "reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now".

Tonight's highly anticipated performers also include Taylor Swift ("I Did Something Bad"), Mariah Carey ("With You"), and Camila Cabello ("Consequences"). The song is from her top-selling "reputation" album.

She also picked up the awards for favourite pop/rock female artist, favourite pop/rock album for Reputation, and tour of the year.

And there was a little more heartache at the end of the ceremony as Gladys Knight, CeCe Winans, Ledisi, Mary Mary, and Donnie McClurkin performed a tribute to the late Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.
