This was not only the group's first American Music Award nomination, but it is also now their first award from this show. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. "These are not MY Tennessee values", Swift wrote.

T-Swift speaks up: The pop star spoke out on Sunday, just two days before the October 9 deadline to register to vote in her home state of Tennessee. In the entire month of September, 190,178 people registered to vote. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent'.

Taylor Swift made history tonight at the American Music Awards, earning the most AMA wins ever by a female artist - but she also did something she has never done before: talk about politics during an awards acceptance speech.

Gladys Knight led a tribute to Aretha Franklin, who died of cancer in August at age 76.

"You can go to vote.org, like Taylor Swift told you to", Eichner said.

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. 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".
