American Music Awards 2018 Show Highlights - The AMAs’ Best Moments

American Music Awards 2018 Show Highlights - The AMAs’ Best Moments

The 2018 American Music Awards are nearly upon us, and ABC has assembled a surprisingly diverse crop of personalities to help us prepare for the big night.

For the month of October so far, 153,978 people have registered to vote.

This was not only the group's first American Music Award nomination, but it is also now their first award from this show.

"Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values", the "Bad Blood" singer added.

Apart from Swift, the show was largely politics free.




Taylor Swift became the most decorated female artist in the history of the American Music Awards with her wins on Tuesday at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theatre.

Cardi B and Drake both have eight AMA nominations.

Other winners included Post Malone (male pop/rock artist), Khalid (male soul/R&B artist), and country star Carrie Underwood, who accepted her 13th American Music Award.

"I want to thank you sexy lady", Offset said, pointing to Cardi B. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway. A special tribute to Aretha Franklin is included, as is some early promotion for the upcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

The songs opening lines address narcissism and lies, the chorus goes "They say I did something bad/ Then why's it feel so good?/ And I'd do it over and over and over again if I could"; pyrotechnics were set off during the lines, "They're burning all the witches, even if you aren't one/ So light me up".
