Taylor Swift will open the show - her first awards show performance in almost three years.

Below is all the information you need to watch American Music Awards online and live Tuesday to see one of music's biggest awards shows.

"I just wanted to make a mention of the fact that this award and every single award given out tonight were voted on by the people", the 28-year-old said at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theatre.

'Tell your friends to vote, ' he urged.

Anyone expecting Taylor Swift to double down on her recent political statements during her show-opening performance on the "American Music Awards" Tuesday night didn't get much to chew on - at least not without dissecting the lyrics of "I Did Something Bad", which she performed in a similar format to her "Reputation" tour.

Swift is nominated for the top prize - artist of the year - where she will compete with Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons, Post Malone and Drake, who ties with Cardi B for most nominations with eight.

The show will be starting off with a bang, thanks to Taylor Swift's return to an awards show stage. If you believe in equality for women, for people of colour, for the LGBTQ community.

Other winners included Post Malone (male pop/rock artist), Khalid (male soul/R&B artist), and country star Carrie Underwood, who accepted her 13th American Music Award. But I have to be really honest with you about something: "I'm even more excited about the next chapter".

The singer added: "I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country". Tracee Ellis Ross is hosting this year's event, which will include various performances and a tribute to Aretha Franklin.

Kane Brown swept the country categories with three wins, including male artist, album and song.
