BTS Crowned Winner Of Favorite Social Artist At 2018 American Music Awards

XXXTentacion wins posthumous American Music Award trophy for favorite soul  R&B album

The event, which was hosted by blackish star Tracee Ellis Ross, also marked Cardi's first awards show performance since giving birth to her daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, whom she welcomed with husband Offset on July 10. "I just wanted to say I'm going to be opening up the American Music Awards with a performance", she wrote. She encouraged everyone to get out and vote this midterm election cycle.

She concluded her speech: "Thank you guys so much I appreciate it".

Billy Eichner, right, got political as he presented the award for favourite adult contemporary artist with Kathryn Hahn.

Swift opened the American Music Awards with a performance and took home the coveted Artist of the Year award. "This award and every single award given out tonight were voted on by the people".

She also posted a snap of her and a pregnant friend backstage at the AMAs, describing herself as a "mother of snakes" in the caption.

In a rare moment for the usually apolitical star, Swift publicly declared her support for Tennessean Democrats Phil Bredesen and Jim Cooper in the midterm elections, and stated her opposition to Republican Marsha Blackburn. These are not MY Tennessee values.

"Thank you God, first and foremost".

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

Despite having the year's top-selling album and three No. 1 hits, Drake didn't win a single award. A special tribute to Aretha Franklin is included, as is some early promotion for the upcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

The big winners of the night?

On Saturday, XXXTentacion won the Best New Artist Award at the BET Hip-Hop Awards in Miami Beach. At the Disco. The diva quota will be filled by headliners Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Underwood, Mariah Carey and the ever-provocative Cardi B.
