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

Broward County rapper XXXTentacion - who was fatally shot during a June robbery - was honored Tuesday at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles.

Taylor Swift has a lot of reasons to be celebrating tonight! "But I have to be really honest with you about something". To say it goes off is an understatement.

The singer racked up wins for favourite pop/rock album for "reputation", tour of the year, and artist of the year. The tribute then transitioned into more rollicking performances by the other artists, with selections that harkened back to Franklin's influential gospel roots.

Swift won Artist of the Year at the fan-voted show in Los Angeles, beating out Drake, Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons and Post Malone for the top prize.

Elsewhere on Tuesday, New York rapper Cardi B, brought down the house with an exuberant performance of dance hit I Like It with J.Balvin and Bad Bunny.

Kane Brown swept the country categories with three wins, including male artist, album and song. Wearing a shimmering black bodysuit and thigh-high boots, the pop star prowled the AMAs stage aggressively alongside a troupe of dancers-as well as a massive moving snake set piece from her recent tour-as she belted the song.

She also took home the award for favorite country female artist.

Other winners on the night included Migos, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello and Carrie Underwood.

BTS has won an award at the 2018 American Music Awards (AMAs)!

The Queen of Soul was remembered with a performance by Gladys Knight, Ledisi, Mary Mary, Donnie McClurkin and CeCe Winans. The American Music Awards pays tribute to today's most influential and iconic artists. Considering she's only 28 years old and it doesn't seem like she's planning on ending her music career anytime soon, it definitely seems possible that she could pull this one out!
