Taylor Swift makes history at American Music Awards

American Music Awards, Kate's Surgery on 'This Is Us,' 'Flash' & 'Black Lightning' Return

Taylor Swift was the big victor at this year's American Music Awards scooping Artist of the Year, Best Pop/Rock Album, Best Tour and Pop/Rock Female Artist.

Broward County rapper XXXTentacion - who was fatally shot during a June robbery - was honored Tuesday at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles. "I'm so nervous you guys", she said.

Billy Eichner, right, got political as he presented the award for favourite adult contemporary artist with Kathryn Hahn. Swift, who had 19 AMA wins prior to this year's show, walked away with a total of 22 awards, beating Whitney Houston's longstanding record of 21 wins. "Go to vote.gov like Taylor Swift told you to".

Cardi B, who won for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist, delivered her first post-baby TV performance with her hit "I Like It", featuring J Balvin and Bad Bunny.

While accepting the award for Artist of the Year, which catapulted Swift to becoming the winningest artist in the history of the AMAs, Swift finished a speech dedicated to her supportive fans by once again urging the public to vote in the upcoming midterm elections. "The midterm elections on November 6", Swift said.

Swift is nominated for artist of the year, tour of the year, favorite pop/rock female artist and favorite pop/rock album with "reputation".

R&B singer Khalid, rap group Migos and country singer Kane Brown also became first-time AMA winners. She also condemned Republican senatorial candidate Marsha Blackburn for her voting record on women's rights and equal marriage.

Cardi B, who has had a breakout 12 months, was also named favorite hip-hop/rap artist, but she lost the best new artist category to Cuban-born Camila Cabello. Watch her emotional acceptance speech above.

The show ended with an emotional tribute to Aretha Franklin that brought the house down.
