The gongs brought her to an impressive career total of 23 AMAs, meaning she overtook Whitney Houston for the most wins by a female artist at the fan-voted show.

On Sunday, Swift provoked a storm by breaking her silence on politics and announcing she would vote for two Democrats in Tennessee in the US congressional midterm elections in November.

She concluded her speech: "Thank you guys so much I appreciate it". "I am honored to accept this award on behalf of my son", she said.

The 2018 American Music Awards were held last night (Oct. 9) at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, they aired on ABC, and they were hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross. In the rap/hip-hop and pop/rock categories, Drake is up for favorite male artist, favorite album and favorite song with "God's Plan". She urged her fans to get educated on the candidates for their states, then get out and vote, as well.

Swift went on to say that she will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives, and encouraged followers to register to vote. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway.

The three-hour show closed with a rousing tribute to Aretha Franklin, who died in August.

Taylor Swift is ready for the "next chapter!" BTS has been announced as the victor of the Favorite Social Artist category! And you know what else is voted on by the people?

XXXTentacion won Favorite Album Soul/R&B for 17.

The all-time leader is Michael Jackson, who had 24 AMA wins before his death in 2009. Other performers include Cardi B with Bad Bunny and J Balvin, Mariah Carey, Carrie Underwood, twenty one pilots and Jennifer Lopez.
