Taylor Swift Wins at AMAs, Encourages Fans to Vote

Swift had actually encouraged her fans to go to vote.org, a nonpartisan website. And I just wanted to make a mention of the fact that this award, and every single award given out tonight, were voted on by the people.

Voting was a hot topic at the AMAs.

Earlier in the show, comedian Billy Eichner had referenced Swift's post. I can not vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Now is the time. If you believe in equality for women, for people of colour, for the LGBTQ community. Taylor also took home the Dick Clark Award of Excellence at the show in 2014, so she's certainly been recognized as a top contender at this ceremony for years!

Accepting the artist of the year prize on stage, Swift said: "I just want to say to the fans, you have been so nice to me and fun and amusing and so cool and so loyal, and it's not lost on me, I understand how lucky I am". On tour, she performs the song with a drawn-out introduction, and Swift opted for that same arrangement on the AMA stage, even pausing for dramatic effect after the venomous lyric "if a man talks shit then I owe him nothing". Cardi B, who was tied with Drake for the most AMA nominations, won the first award of the night for favorite rap/hip-hop artist.

Atoms is the other currency in Fallout 76 , but unlike bottle caps, it's the one you'll be able to buy using real money. Atoms are also earned in-game by completing tasks.

She concluded her speech: "Thank you guys so much I appreciate it".

Cardi B returned the favor, screaming happily when Migos was named favorite pop/rock duo or group, beating out Maroon 5 and Imagine Dragons, later in the show.

Other performers on the night included Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello, and some other people but we've forgotten because none of them came close to this certified mome.

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