Taylor Swift not only opened the American Music Awards with a fiery performance of I Did Something Bad, but she went on to dominate the show.

The star won four trophies, including artist of the year, making her the ceremony’s most-decorated female ever.

She now holds 23 AMAs, beating a record previously held by Whitney Houston.

Swift, who recently broke years of political silence to declare support for two Democrats, again urged fans to take part in the US mid-term elections.

Accepting artist of the year, she said: “This award, and every single award given out tonight, were voted on by the people.

“And you know what else is voted on by the people? The midterm elections on November 6. Get out and vote. I love you guys.”

Swift’s touring partner Camila Cabello also won four awards at the ceremony; while British singers Ella Mai and Dua Lipa gave show-stopping performances.

Here are some of the best bits.

Cardi B performed I Like It… on a bicycle

Resembling nothing less than an explosion in a branch of Claire’s Accessories; Cardi B’s vibrant, multicoloured performance was stunning even before she wheeled Bad Bunny on stage in a shopping trolley.

She went on to flex her leg over her head and ride a bicycle across the stage (sadly not at the same time) – leaving SNL star Taran Killam somewhat lost for words.

Taylor Swift and Camilla Cabello were relationship goals

They multiple award winners, but touring partners and BFFs Taylor Swift and Camila Cabello seemed to be more excited to spend a night in each other’s company.

Who says women in music have to be at each other’s throats all the time?

Meanwhile, Swift hinted she’d started work on the follow-up to Reputation.

“I always look at albums as chapters in my life,” she said on stage.

“To the fans, I’m so happy that you like this one – but I have to be really honest with you about something: I’m even more excited about the next chapter.”
