Camila Cabello won her first ever American Music Awards as a solo artist in 2018 and she couldn't have been happier, but there were plenty of Camila moments viewers will have missed that kinda stole the show. "I love you guys". "You know what else gets voted on by the people?".

Less than 48 hours after her post, more than 169,000 new people had registered to vote, more than half of whom were aged 18 to 29. She encouraged everyone to get out and vote this midterm election cycle.

Swift also opened Tuesday nifht's ceremony at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles with a performance of I Did Something Bad off of her album, Reputation.

Elsewhere on Tuesday, New York rapper Cardi B, brought down the house with an exuberant performance of dance hit I Like It with J.Balvin and Bad Bunny. 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!

She also made history by snagging the artist of the year award, making her the most awarded artist in AMA history.

Brooks Koepka named PGA Tour Player of the Year
But emotion or not, it was a feat even Koepka said seemed a "laughable" prospect at the start of the year. Open at Shinnecock Hills to become the first player to go back-to-back since 1989.

Checotah native Carrie Underwood received the trophy for Favorite Female Artist - Country during tonight's American Music Awards.

Taylor Swift is gaining a "Reputation" for her political opinions. And with this momentum, she will probably do just that during her next album cycle.

This was not only the group's first American Music Award nomination, but it is also now their first award from this show. "She's just incredible. Even though I'm in that category, I feel like I've won enough or whatever".

Legendary singer Aretha Franklin, who died of pancreatic cancer in August, was honored with a gospel tribute that closed out the show. Other performers included Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Missy Elliott.
