A triumphant Taylor Swift urged people to vote in November's USA midterm elections as she swept the board at the American Music Awards (AMAs).

There was a political undercurrent to Tuesday's show at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theatre, and before Swift took to the stage, fans were urged to vote during an impassioned plea by American Horror Story star Billy Eichner.

"This award and every single award given out tonight were voted on by the people", she said. In her acceptance speech for artist of the year, Swift once again encouraged her fans and viewers to vote. 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. Her awards also led her to become the most decorated female artist at the AMAs, with 22 trophies. I have an incredible team of people who make my universe go round, so thank you so much.
