Taylor Swift has kicked off her week with a rare political post on social media, and at the American Music Awards she continued the conversation by encouraging fans to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.

The singer echoed her own political Instagram post and said, "And you know what else is voted on by the people is the midterm elections on November 6".

The main ceremony, hosted by black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross, begins at 8 pm on ABC. Now is the time. So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count.

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

Swift wrote in her Instagram announcement Monday that she is supporting Tennessee's Democratic Senate candidate Phil Bredesen, who is running against Republican Marsha Blackburn for Sen. Despite having the year's top-selling album and three No. 1 hits, Drake didn't win a single award. Cardi B and Drake are tied with the most nominations leading into the big show; both rappers are nominated in eight categories, though only Cardi will be taking the stage to perform.

India expected to keep buying Iranian oil despite sanctions by US
Several models call for the Hurricane to miss major producing assets in the Gulf, but any change of track could widen the impact. India is the world's third-largest oil importer, and Iran's second-biggest oil customer after China.


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

"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'.

She then thanked her husband, Offset, for his support.

Cardi B returned the favour, screaming happily when Migos was named favourite pop/rock duo or group, beating out Maroon 5 and Imagine Dragons, later in the show. "I love you guys". Additionally, several of gospel and R&B's heaviest hitters will assemble for what's sure to be a touching Aretha Franklin tribute. She is now only two awards behind Whitney Houston, who holds the record for most AMAs won by a female artist. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me.

Khalid won favourite male soul/R&B artist.
