Thomas Rhett's American Music Awards flashy suit contains hidden tribute

Thomas Rhett's American Music Awards flashy suit contains hidden tribute

Taylor Swift has kicked off her week with a rare political post on social media, and at the American Music Awards she continued the conversation by encouraging fans to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.

The singer echoed her own political Instagram post and said, "And you know what else is voted on by the people is the midterm elections on November 6". And you know what else is voted on by the people? In a lengthy essay, Swift said she couldn't vote for Republican Marsha Blackburn due to her positions on issues such as equal pay, domestic violence and gay rights and instead threw her support behind former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen, a Democrat.

Taylor Swift won Artist of the Year. Of course, she was surrounded by dancers, but about 2/3 of the way through her performance of "I Did Something Bad", she was also joined by a massive cobra snake, which rose from the stage.

On Saturday, XXXTentacion won the Best New Artist Award at the BET Hip-Hop Awards in Miami Beach.

Before they handed out the award for the year's Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist, Billy Eichner and Kathryn Hahn made a plea to viewers: vote. "I love you guys!"


Cardi B won the favourite rap artist gong and thanked her three-month-old daughter, Kulture. "I'm so nervous, " Bernard said as the audience cheered her on. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent'.

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

Registered voters have reportedly spiked 100,000 in the state in just a few days.

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.

Among the performances, a tribute to the late Aretha Franklin is planned.
