Taylor Swift made history at the 2018 American Music Awards on Tuesday, and she took a moment to encourage fans to exercise their right to vote.

Referring to the fact the awards were "voted for by the people", Swift said: "You know what else is voted on by the people?", before telling fans to "get out and vote" at the midterm elections. "Get out and vote - I love you guys".

"Every award was voted on by the people", Swift said of the AMAs. After accepting three trophies at Tuesday's AMAs ceremony - for Artist of the Year, Best Pop/Rock Album, and Best Tour - Swift's grand total of AMAs is now 22, besting the late Whitney Houston's record of 21. If you believe in equality for women, for people of color, for the LGBTQ community.

Swift told iHeart Radio ahead of the release of Reputation that "I Did Something Bad" came to her in a dream, and that it includes paired-down pitch effects that create a unique tone at the chorus' end.

Supreme Court reserves verdict in Asia Bibi's final appeal against execution
Bibi's supporters maintain her innocence and insist it was a personal dispute, and the Vatican has called for her release. Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of five, has spent the last nine years in prison for a crime she didn't commit.

This was not only the group's first American Music Award nomination, but it is also now their first award from this show. "I'm even more excited about the next chapter".

Swift's touring guest Camila Cabello also won four awards, while Kane Brown swept the country categories, winning favourite male, favourite album and favourite song.

Gladys Knight performs while an image of the late Aretha Franklin is projected on a screen during the 2018 American Music Awards on October 9, 2018, in Los Angeles. The show also paid tribute to Aretha Franklin, who died in August.

Swift kicked off the AMAs with a performance of I Did Something Bad, while Cardi B picked up the night's first award, favourite hip-hop/rap artist, which she dedicated to her daughter. Considering she's only 28 years old and it doesn't seem like she's planning on ending her music career anytime soon, it definitely seems possible that she could pull this one out!
