Swift won four honors including artist of the year at the fan-voted show on Tuesday in Los Angeles, beating out Drake, Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons, and Post Malone for the top prize.

"Every single time this happens it represents encouragement and motivation for me to be better, work harder, and try and make you guys proud", said Swift in her acceptance speech.

At tonight's American Music Awards, the fans voted, the host danced, and there were plenty of moments that you'll hear about tomorrow morning.

On Sunday, Swift provoked a storm by breaking her silence on politics and announcing she would vote for two Democrats in Tennessee in the US congressional midterm elections in November.

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". His mother, Cleopatra Bernard, accepted the award on his behalf. "I'm so nervous you guys", she said.

The diva quota will be filled by headliners Jennifer Lopez , Carrie Underwood , Mariah Carey and the ever-provocative Cardi B . Some of music's top stars, including Beyoncé, Ariana Grande , Rihanna and Kanye West, were absent from Tuesday's show.

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.

'In the past I've been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now, ' she wrote. She also condemned Republican senatorial candidate Marsha Blackburn for her voting record on women's rights and equal marriage. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent'.

Registered voters have reportedly spiked 100,000 in the state in just a few days. Other performers included Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Missy Elliott.

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

Cabello's Havana took Pop/Rock Song and Underwood was recognised as the favourite Country Female Artist.
