Tonight's highly anticipated performers also include Taylor Swift ("I Did Something Bad"), Mariah Carey ("With You"), and Camila Cabello ("Consequences"). They came together for the explosive finale, and earned a standing ovation from the crowd including G-Eazy, DJ Mustard, and actor Taran Killam, whose jaw was on the floor. 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". She thanked her team, husband Offset, and daughter Kulture in her speech.

There were only a couple of other political moments during the night - including a passionate call to vote from presenter Billy Eichner and host Tracee Ellis Ross wearing a T-shirt that said, "I am a voter". "They said I wasn't going to make it after I had a baby".

Others who shined onstage included R&B singer Ciara, who showed off her skilled dance moves and was joined by a fierce Missy Elliott.

Camila Cabello was also a big victor on Tuesday night.
