American Music Awards: 10 things to know, from Taylor Swift’s speech to the Aretha Franklin tribute

Emily Yahr October 10 at 6:00 AM

At the beginning of the American Music Awards on Tuesday, host Tracee Ellis Ross had some exciting news to share about Taylor Swift: “If she wins three awards tonight, she will become the most decorated female artist in American Music Awards history.” Guess what happened next?

Indeed, the fan-voted AMAs are the kind of show where if you see a superstar sitting in the audience, you can bet they’re going to get a trophy. Such was the case with Swift, who won four awards, tying Camila Cabello for the most of any artist of the night. That means Swift now has 23 AMAs over her career; Whitney Houston previously held the record with 21.

As a result, Swift had plenty of time on stage as she picked up tour of the year; pop/rock album; and the most prestigious category of the night, artist of the year. (She also won female pop/rock artist, which wasn’t televised.) While Swift didn’t get anywhere near as political as she did in her Instagram post that blew up the Internet this week, she did have one message in her final speech.

“This award and every single award given out tonight were voted on by the people,” Swift said. “And you know what else is voted on by the people is the midterm elections on Nov. 6. Get out and vote! I love you guys.”

Here are some highlights from the show, with a complete list of winners below.
