Taylor Swift Takes Home Five American Music Awards

Taylor Swift cleaned up at the American Music Awards on Sunday (November 22), taking home five awards, including the biggest award of the evening, Artist of the Year.

The 19-year-old singer also won Favorite Female Artist (Country), Favorite Female Artist (Pop/Rock), Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist and Favorite Album.

Tay watched the show via satellite in London’s Wembley Arena, where she’ll be performing tonight in a sold-out show – she accepted Artist of the Year at nearly 4 a.m. London time!

“Music has never been ultimately about competition,” Taylor said. “And to even be mentioned in a category with Michael Jackson, who we will miss and love forever, is an unimaginable honor.

I just want to say that I’m sending my love to the Jackson family, and to Janet for reaching out to me the way that you have. And, to the fans, you have given me so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving! I hope you guys have an awesome Thanksgiving…..l miss and I love you. Thank you so much!”

Congratulations, T!!
