Now that we got those out of the way…here’s everything that happened in between.

Taylor Swift kicked off the AMAs by performing I Did Something Bad and absolutely slayed! She also won 4 awards last night, told her fans to vote, and teased her up-coming album! She says: “”I always look at albums as chapters in my life, and I’m so – to the fans, I’m so happy that you like this one. I’m so happy that this means that you like this one, but I have to be really honest with you about something: I’m even more excited about the next chapter.”

 

 

Cardi B steered clear of mentioning Nicki Minaj.
