Last night was the annual American Music Awards, live from Los Angeles, and it was Taylor Swift who dominated the event, taking home five trophies including Artist of the Year.

Taylor entered the evening already guaranteed to win one award for Artist of the Decade. She’s also previously won Artist of the Year four times previously (2009, 2011, 2013, 2018). And with that, Taylor broke the record for the most award artist at the AMAs of all time with 29 awards, beating the previous record held by Michael Jackson. Swift also took the stage to perform a medley of some of her biggest hits.

Among the night’s other big winners included Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X, BTS, and Carrie Underwood.

Hosted by Ciara, the night featured performances from Swift, Eilish, Lizzo, Selena Gomez, Christina Aguilera & A Great Big World, Post Malone & Ozzy Osbourne, Kesha & Big Freedia, Halsey, Camila Cabello, Toni Braxton, Shawn Mendes and Shania Twain.
