Taylor Swift sets new American Music Award record, urges people to vote

Two very different looks Taylor Swift and Poppy

On Tuesday, the Fearless singer told the American Music Awards audience in Los Angeles and millions watching at home to go and vote. 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.

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

No matter why you enjoy music, or what your favorite kind of music is, the 2018 American Music Awards ceremony has something in there for everybody. Her awards also led her to become the most decorated female artist at the AMAs, with 22 trophies.

Like Cardi B's performance, rising newcomer Ella Mai also won over the crowd when she sang the year's biggest R&B hit, Boo'd Up, starting the performance as she walked down the aisle of the Microsoft Theater.

Cardi B, who has had a breakout 12 months, was also named favorite hip-hop/rap artist, but she lost the best new artist category to Cuban-born Camila Cabello.

His mother, Cleopatra Bernard, said she was honoured to accept the award on behalf of her son. Other performers included Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Missy Elliott.

Chelsea legend John Terry has announced his retirement from club football after over two decades of trophy laden career. He wasn't just superb for his club side as he also scored six times in 78 appearances for the Three Lions of England.

Competition will be fierce at this year's American Music Awards.

Some of music's top stars, including Drake, Ed Sheeran, Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Rihanna and Kanye West, were absent on Tuesday.

This year's AMAs are once again hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross, star of ABC's sitcom Black-ish.

Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me, ' Swift wrote in a post on Instagram.

Eichner was on stage with fellow presenter Kathryn Hahn, to present the award for favorite adult contemporary artist to Shawn Mendes.
