Taylor Swift Brings Friend Claire Winter to AMAs 2018!

Taylor Swift Brings Friend Claire Winter to AMAs 2018!

The 28-year-old superstar waded into politics again Wednesday, encouraging crowds to "get out and vote" in the midterm elections during her "artist of the year" acceptance speech at the American Music Awards.

On Sunday, Swift provoked a storm by breaking her silence on politics and announcing she would vote for two Democrats in Tennessee in the USA congressional midterm elections in November. "Not just because she's my daughter, but while I was pregnant, I was just so influenced to be like, 'Yo, I gotta do this!' I had to prove people wrong, 'cause they said I wasn't gonna make it after I had a baby". It's the midterm elections on November 6.

Tonight's highly anticipated performers also include Taylor Swift ("I Did Something Bad"), Mariah Carey ("With You"), and Camila Cabello ("Consequences"). But not this time.

Swift first announced she'd perform at the show on October 2 in an Instagram post.

Her words follow comments she made on social media earlier this week, in which she endorsed two Democrat candidates in her home state of Tennessee: Phil Bredesen for the Senate and Jim Cooper for the House of Representatives. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I can not support Marsha Blackburn. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do.




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

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

XXXTentacion won Favorite Album Soul/R&B for 17.

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

Taylor Swift has a LOT to celebrate after this year's American Music Awards! It was days after he was named best new artist at the BET Hip-Hop Awards.
