Taylor Swift kicks off the American Music Awards

Taylor Swift performs onstage during the 2018 American Music Awards

(CNN)Taylor Swift did something bad for the opening of the 2018 American Music Awards Tuesday night.

The singer, who just wrapped the North American leg of her "Reputation" tour, kicked off the show with her single, "I Did Something Bad."
Dressed in a sequined one-piece, Swift strutted the stage with her dancers to the delight of the audience.
And, of course, there was a giant snake -- an emblem Swift has made her own after #TaylorSwiftIsASnake became a thing a few years ago as a diss against the singer.
