Tracee Ellis Ross celebrates black designers in 12 different looks at the American Music Awards

A triumphant Taylor Swift urged people to vote in November's USA midterm elections as she swept the board at the American Music Awards (AMAs). Tay has never been vocal about politics, but she broke her silence on the topic on October 7, when she revealed why she'll be voting for Tennessee's Democratic candidates for Senate and the House of Representatives at the midterm elections on November 6.

Voting was a hot topic at the AMAs.

Aside from Eichner's speech, which resulted in him being hugged by Mendes, host Tracee Ellis Ross donned an "I am a voter" t-shir before asking if audience members are voters too.

'Tell your friends to vote, ' he urged. Now is the time. If you believe in equality for women, for people of colour, for the LGBTQ community. I can not vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love.

Taylor Swift is breaking records.

Swift opened the American Music Awards on Tuesday night which was unusually political.

"I really want to thank my daughter", said Cardi B, who gave birth to Kulture Kiari Cephus in July. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent'. I can not vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love.

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.

Late rapper, XXXTentacion, who was gunned down in June aged 20, won a posthumous award. He won best new artist at the BET Hip-Hop Awards this month. "Get out and vote", Swift said when accepting her trophy.

Swift went on to say that she will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives, and encouraged followers to register to vote. She's up for additional three awards at the show, including Pop/Rock Female Artist and Artist of the Year. Other performers included Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Missy Elliott.
