Music Was the Surprising Star of the American Music Awards

    Taylor Swift, who just wrapped the North American leg of her “Reputation” tour, kicked off the show with her single “I Did Something Bad.” She also made history by snagging the artist of the year award, making her the most awarded female artist in AMA history.
    Legendary singer Aretha Franklin was honored with a gospel tribute that closed out the show. Her friend Gladys Knight began with a stirring rendition of “Amazing Grace.” The tribute then transitioned into more rollicking performances by the other artists, with selections that harkened back to Franklin’s influential gospel roots.
