A special tribute to Aretha Franklin is included, as is some early promotion for the upcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. The night opens with Taylor Swift making her first awards-show performance in almost three years, and tributes promise to provide memorable moments.
The rapper won for Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Artist at the 2018 American Music Awards and she accepted the award with style, grace and her amusing sense of humor. Her awards also led her to become the most decorated female artist at the AMAs, with 22 trophies.
"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. BTS was previously announced as one of the nominees for Favorite Social Artist.
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. We're excited to see what's in store for tonight's American Music Awards! In the rap/hip-hop and pop/rock categories, Drake is up for favorite male artist, favorite album and favorite song with "God's Plan". Host and Golden Globe-winning black-ish actress Tracee Ellis Ross wore a shirt that said, "I am a voter", and comedian-actor Billy Eichner told the audience, "The biggest election of our lifetime is happening".
