The politically charged 2018 American Music Awards produced dismal viewership, setting an all-time low rating for the annual special.

The 2018 American Music Awards went down in Los Angeles on Tuesday and several of our favorite singers, songwriters, and producers were on deck to show off their style game on the red carpet. "Get on and vote". "I love you guys", Taylor said while reminding fans to vote.

She added that the awards represented "encouragement and motivation to be better and work harder". "And you know what else is voted on by the people?"

Swift broke her silence on politics for the first time Monday, expressing that she would vote for Tennessee Democrats in the midterms.

The event, which was hosted by blackish star Tracee Ellis Ross, also marked Cardi's first awards show performance since giving birth to her daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, whom she welcomed with husband Offset on July 10.

Migos were acknowledged as the favourite duo in the Pop/Rock category, while Mendes won the Adult Contemporary Artist.

Hudgens made the smart move of keeping her accessories simple, allowing her dress to take center stage.

In addition, performers at the 2018 AMAs will include Benny Blanco with Halsey and Khalid, Camila Cabello, Cardi B featuring J Balvin & Bad Bunny, Carrie Underwood, Ciara featuring Missy Elliott, Dua Lipa, Ella Mai, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Panic!

Swift used her acceptance speech for artist of the year to encourage her fans to vote.

And there was a little more heartache at the end of the ceremony as Gladys Knight, CeCe Winans, Ledisi, Mary Mary, and Donnie McClurkin performed a tribute to the late Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.
