AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift finally made her return to American Music Awards stage after four years. She opened the Tracee Ellis Ross-hosted show at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on October 9 with a rendition of her "Reputation" track "I Did Something Bad".
Rocking a sparkly burgundy jumpsuit and knee-high black boots, she sang about keeping the upper hand on playboys as she was joined by a dozen of female backup dancers. There were also male backup dancers, but they were swayed at her command as the stage exploded in flames and sparks.
The fiery performance came to a climax towards the end, with her dancers splayed out on the floor. "They're burning all the witches, even if you aren't one/ They got their pitchforks and proof/ Their receipts and reasons," she sang as an enormous cobra head emerged behind her and she was lifted up on the dancer's hand.
Taylor received a huge round of applause after she finished performing the song. Many viewers at home were also amazed by her rendition, with many taking to social media to express their excitement over the former country singer's set at the show. One excited fan said, "LOOK AT TAYLOR SWIFT'S DURING I DID SOMETHING BAD," while another tweeted, "when you should be working but @taylorswift13 is life."
Not only slaying her opening performance, Taylor also took home the Tour of the Year Award for her record-breaking "Reputation Stadium Tour". Accepting the honor from Heidi Klum, she thanked everyone who was involved with her tour, including her supporting acts Camila Cabello and Charli XCX.
The "Look What You Made Me Do" singer is additionally nominated for Artist of the Year alongside Drake, Imagine Dragons, Post Malone and Ed Sheeran. She is also vying for Favorite Album Pop/Rock and Favorite Female Artist Pop/Rock.
