'You can go to like Taylor Swift told you to and go right now'. A salute to Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin will include Gladys Knight, Ledisi and CeCe Winans, and with a movie bio-pic soon to open, Queen will be remembered with a rendition of "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Panic! Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me, ' Swift wrote in a post on Instagram.

Cabello's Havana took Pop/Rock Song and Underwood was recognised as the favourite Country Female Artist. He won best new artist at the BET Hip-Hop Awards this month. Other performers included Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Missy Elliott.
