Taylor Swift Wins Big At The AMAs

Taylor Swift won the Artist of the Year Award in 2009, and last night she won it again.  The shocked singer said to the gathered crowd that “This is one of the craziest things that has ever happened to me.  Thank you to the fans. Please, never change.”  It was just one of three awards for the young star as she also took home the honors for Favourite Female Country Artist and Favourite Country Album for her Speak Now record.

Also taking home three trophies was British singer Adele.  Due to recent vocal chord surgery she couldn’t attend the event at the Los Angeles’s Nokia Theatre, but she still received the awards for Favourite Pop or Rock Artist, Favourite Pop or Rock album for 21, and Favourite Adult Contemporary Artist.

The evening was what you would expect it to be, with a lot of glitz and glamour on the red carpet as well as performances by musicians.  Maroon 5 along with Christina Aguilera performed their hit Moves Like Jagger, J.Lo performed On The Floor with Pitbull and even debuted her new song T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever) with will.i.am.
