Taylor Swift gets political at awards

T-Swift speaks up: The pop star spoke out on Sunday, just two days before the October 9 deadline to register to vote in her home state of Tennessee.

Ciara put in an energetic performance at the American Music Awards.

The singer echoed her own political Instagram post and said, "And you know what else is voted on by the people is the midterm elections on November 6".

The musician, who hasn't attended the AMAs since 2014, is up for four of tonight's top awards: Artist of the Year, Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist, Favorite Pop/Rock Album and Favorite Tour. Don't let people tell you your vote doesn't count.

Cardi B, who has had a breakout 12 months, was also named favorite hip-hop/rap artist, but she lost the best new artist category to Cuban-born Camila Cabello.

Nathan Deal on Tuesday issued a state of emergency covering 92 counties - almost the entire lower two-thirds of his state. The storm was centered about 365 miles south of Apalachicola and 395 miles south of Panama City, Florida.

The show will be starting off with a bang, thanks to Taylor Swift's return to an awards show stage.

"'I always look at albums as chapters in my life", she continued. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I can not vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love.

Gladys Knight led a tribute to Aretha Franklin, who died of cancer in August at age 76.

The songs opening lines address narcissism and lies, the chorus goes "They say I did something bad/ Then why's it feel so good?/ And I'd do it over and over and over again if I could"; pyrotechnics were set off during the lines, "They're burning all the witches, even if you aren't one/ So light me up". Other performers included Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Missy Elliott.
