The speech was welcomed by loud applause while host for the evening, American comedian Tracee Ellis Ross, wore a T-shirt bearing the slogan "I am a voter".

"You can go to vote.org, like Taylor Swift told you to", Eichner said.

She also picked up the awards for favourite pop/rock female artist, favourite pop/rock album for Reputation, and tour of the year.

Kane Brown swept the country categories with three wins, including male artist, album and song.

Swift is nominated for the top prize - artist of the year - where she will compete with Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons, Post Malone and Drake, who ties with Cardi B for most nominations with eight.

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.

'If you believe in equality for women, for people of color, the LGBTQ community; if you believe climate change is real and we need to do something about it.

Swift said that although she would like to continue supporting female politicians, she came out against incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn whose voting record, Swift said, "appalls and terrifies" her. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent'.

Now, Taylor is just three AMAs away from beating Michael Jackson's all-time win record of 24. She also believes they should not have the right to marry.

Elsewhere, Swift was not the only major celebrity to perform, with both Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez taking to the stage.

Gladys Knight led a tribute to Aretha Franklin, who died of cancer in August at age 76.

Rapper-singer XXXTentacion, a streaming juggernaut before his death in June and afterward, earned nominations for new artist of the year and favorite soul/R&B album for his 2017 debut, "17".
