Taylor Swift won artist of the year at the American Music Awards.

She beat out Drake, Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons and Post Malone at the fan-voted show Tuesday night.

The singer, who opened up politically in a lengthy Instagram post this week, used her speech to encourage fans to vote.

"I just wanted to make a mention at the fact that 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 is the midterm elections on November 6."

She also won tour of the year and favorite pop/rock album with "reputation."

Swift also performed the show's opening number.

The pop star performed "I Did Something Bad" on Tuesday at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The song is from her top-selling "reputation" album.

Swift was backed by more than a dozen dancers for the performance and a large snake hovered behind her onstage.
