Taylor Swift made a bold return to the red carpet on Tuesday night at the American Music Awards.
The Love Story singer had all eyes on her in a metallic silver thigh-skimming Balmain dress that she paired with a pair of sexy thigh boots as she posed for pictures at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.
Taylor, who recently broke her political silence to back the Democrats, open the annual awards bash with her first show performance in nearly three years.
Dressed in a sparkly black leotard and thigh-high boots, she performed I Did Something Bad from her 2017 album Reputation, on a set adorned by a huge mechanical cobra and red smoke.
The 28-year-old is nominated in four categories and will overtake Whitney Houston for the most AMAs won by a female artist if she triumphs in three of them.
This year’s AMAs, touted as the world’s largest fan-voted awards show, are dominated by rap music, with Drake and Cardi B leading the way on eight nominations each.
They are followed by Sheeran and Malone, who are both on six.
British star Dua Lipa is up against Cardi B, Camila Cabello, Khalid and the late rapper XXXTentacion for new artist.
As well as Taylor, other performers on the night include Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey.
There will also be a tribute to Aretha Franklin, who died in August.
