TAYLOR SWIFT Makes History at American Music Awards Show

Taylor Swift has a lot to celebrate after this year’s American Music Awards! Not only did she open the show with a mind-blowing performance of her song ‘I Did Something Bad,’ but she took home three awards at the show, and broke an all-time record previously held by Whitney Houston. With her wins for Best Tour, Best Pop/Rock Album and Artist of the Year, Taylor now has the most AMAs of any female artist – 22 in total! Before this, Whitney had 21, so Taylor had to win in three of her four categories at the 2018 show to come out on top… and she did just that!

Now, Taylor is just three AMAs away from beating Michael Jackson’s all-time win record of 24. Considering she’s only 28 and it doesn’t seem like she’s planning on ending her music career anytime soon, it definitely seems possible that she could pull this one out! Taylor was nominated for her first AMA for Favourite Female Country Artist in 2007, but she didn’t take home a win until 2008, when she won in that same category. 2009 was a big one for Taylor at the show, as she won Artist of the Year, Favourite Pop/Rock Female Artist, Favourite Country Female Artist, Favourite Adult Contemporary Artist AND Favourite Country Album.
