Elsewhere on Tuesday, New York rapper Cardi B, brought down the house with an exuberant performance of dance hit I Like It with J.Balvin and Bad Bunny.

Host Tracee Ellis Ross sported a white T-shirt for part of the evening saying "I am a voter", and presenter Billy Eichner, best known for the TV comedy "Parks and Recreation", urged the youth audience to register to vote. She will oversee a ceremony that includes Taylor Swift performing "I Did Something Bad", in her first live performance at an awards show since 2015.

The 28-year-old country star stepped out to the 2018 American Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Tuesday, rocking a teal suit with snazzy Gucci shoes.

"We did not know we was winning this at all", said Quavo, also giving a shout-out to group member Takeoff, who didn't attend the AMAs. On tour, she performs the song with a drawn-out introduction, and Swift opted for that same arrangement on the AMA stage, even pausing for dramatic effect after the venomous lyric "if a man talks shit then I owe him nothing". The show will also pay tribute to Aretha Franklin, who died in August. Gladys Knight, Ledisi, Mary Mary, Donnie McClurkin and CeCe Winans were among the musicians who paid tribute to the Queen of Soul's gospel roots and her iconic album, Amazing Grace. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me.
