Swift will open the AMAs with her "Reputation" track "I Did Something Bad", marking her first awards show performance since 2016, when she sang "1989" hit "Out of the Woods" at that year's Grammys. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. In the past I've been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. These are not MY Tennessee values'.

For the month of October so far, 153,978 people have registered to vote. Don't let people tell you your vote doesn't count. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent'.

"You can go to vote.org, like Taylor Swift told you to", Eichner said.
