American Music Awards - All The Performances: Watch Here!

American Music Awards - All The Performances: Watch Here!

"I'm so nervous you guys", she said.

"Every award was voted on by the people", Swift said of the AMAs. If you believe in equality for women, for people of colour, for the LGBTQ community. Tay has never been vocal about politics, but she broke her silence on the topic on October 7, when she revealed why she'll be voting for Tennessee's Democratic candidates for Senate and the House of Representatives at the midterm elections on November 6. To say it goes off is an understatement. 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. After she urged her fans to vote on Sunday evening, and supported Democratic candidates, the voter registration numbers have spiked, Conservatives are reacting, even Trump commented, and the world has sat up to take notice of this young woman asserting her political voice for the first time. These are not MY Tennessee values. Bob Corker's seat. Swift, a Tennessee resident, also said she'd be voting for incumbent Rep. Jim Cooper, a Democrat.

Watch all the performances below (bare with us as we find all the links). So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. This was Swift's first awards show performance in nearly three years - and the first of her Reputation era - and she definitely came back with a bang.

Swift - trading in her metallic red carpet dress for a sparkly black leotard - kicked off the awards show with an appropriately over-the-top rendition of her Reputation banger "I Did Something Bad". A special tribute to Aretha Franklin is included, as is some early promotion for the upcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.
