The beloved country singer killed off Taylor Swift as we know it, and turned her into a pop-star - and fans loved it more than they thought.

"[If] you didn't want to hang out with us, we wouldn't have been on an amazingly fun stadium tour", she said.

"This award and every single award given out tonight is voted on by the people". If you believe in equality for women, for people of color, for the LGBTQ community. "Get on and vote". Cardi B and Drake are tied with the most nominations leading into the big show; both rappers are nominated in eight categories, though only Cardi will be taking the stage to perform. But she later dropped the snaky bad-girl shtick of her Reputation era to sweetly thank her fans during her three speeches.

Taylor Swift might have won for American Music Awards and put on a storming performances at the AMAs, but it was her snake Karyn who really stole the show. "She's just awesome. Even though I'm in that category, I feel like I've won enough or whatever".

"And you can go to Vote.org like Taylor Swift told you to". It takes her AMA tally to 23, beating Whitney Houston's 19 to make her the most successful female artist at the awards.

Chelsea have the same points as Liverpool and Man City and now sit second on the league table - based on their goal difference. But we have to make sure we manage it until the end of the season to keep it like this.

Taylor Swift won't be shaking off the winning feeling before she heads to Perth to kick off her Australian tour next week.

Other big winners included Camila Cabello, Post Malone, Migos, Young Thug, Cardi B, Rihanna, Khalid, Florida Georgia Line, Carrie Underwood, Bruno Mars, Kane Brown and the late XXXTentacion.

With the release of her recent album, Reputation, she made it clear that she was in for some prominent changes - and not just in her music.

And Aretha Franklin was honored with a star-studded performance highlighting the Queen of Soul's gospel roots and her 1972 album Amazing Grace.
