The BBMA Swiftlist: What you need to know tonight. Bad Blood is coming.
We might end up calling it the Taylor Swift show, Taylor Nation.

The Red Carpet starts at 6pm EST in Yahoo! Live. I mean, we hope they are. Perhaps they’ll cancel later. Yahoo, you’re going to be the butt of at least one ribbing for announcing something you actually couldn’t stream. You’re getting off light, believe me. Link here.
