It was a record-breaking night for Taylor Swift at the American Music Awards.
Not only did the pop superstar open the show with a fiery performance of “I Did Something Bad,” but she went on to win four awards, breaking Whitney Houston’s record for most AMA wins by a female artist. She took home the trophies for Tour of the Year, Favorite Pop/Rock Album for “Reputation,” Favorite Female Artist Pop/Rock and Artist of the Year — bringing her career total to 23 AMAs.
In addition to breaking a record, Taylor continued to break her silence on politics. After getting political in an Instagram post over the weekend, Taylor used her acceptance speech for Artist of the Year to encourage people to vote.
