This year's AMAs are once again hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross, star of ABC's sitcom Black-ish. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country.

The performance is so batshit good we're placing Cardi in the award show performance hall of fame alongside Lady Gaga's 2009 MTV VMA performance (read; work of art), and EVERY.

Migos were acknowledged as the favourite duo in the pop/rock category, Mendes won the adult contemporary artist, Cabello's Havana took pop/rock song and Underwood was recognised as the favourite country music female. The night opens with Taylor Swift making her first awards-show performance in almost three years, and tributes promise to provide memorable moments.

The rapper hit the stage to give a festive and colourful performance of her No. 1 hit, I Like It, where she was joined by J Balvin and Bad Bunny, who was wheeled onstage inside a shopping cart.

Cardi B brought the party to the AMAs.

He told the audience they should register to vote if they cared for "equality for women, for people of colour, for the LGBTQ community, if you believe that climate change is real".

Swift said that although she would like to continue supporting female politicians, she came out against incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn whose voting record, Swift said, "appalls and terrifies" her.

'In the past I've 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, ' she wrote.

'She voted against equal pay for women.

"And you can go to Vote.org like Taylor Swift told you to", he added. "I gotta prove people wrong". These are not MY Tennessee values'.

Among the performances, a tribute to the late Aretha Franklin is planned.

She also picked up three other awards, for best female pop artist, best tour, and best pop album for "reputation", the biggest seller of 2017. Other performers included Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Missy Elliott.
