Taylor Swift moonwalks past Michael Jackson’s record at AMA Awards

Taylor Swift moonwalks past Michael Jackson’s record at AMA Awards

While music giants like Beyoncé, Cardi B, Taylor Swift, Great Khalid and Bruno Mars won various awards, the fashion at the awards is commendable.

After taking home six awards during Sunday's show, the 29-year-old singer uploaded a proud post to Instagram, Monday, cozying up to her new trophies.

The 25-year-old singer, who recently tweeted about her disappointment with the Recording Academy after not receiving a Grammy nomination, ranted about how an AMA was a much more meaningful award to win.

Though Jackson still owns the No. 2 spot, he previously held the record for years, and even spent years battling the late-Whitney Houston for it. "That sounds unbelievable, but what sounds unforgivable, she's got more awards than Michael Jackson!".

Taylor Swift is sharing her appreciation after an extremely successful night at the 2019 American Music Awards.

It was an emotional evening for Taylor Swift's mother Andrea Sunday, as she welled up with tears while watching her daughter perform and accept the Artist of the Decade award at the American Music Awards. The singer hit the AMAs stage twice at the 2019 show - first to perform her song " Graveyard" during which she and a lookalike performer dressed in identical all white outfits splattered paint on one another throughout the song. She rambled onstage as she won the final award of the night - artist of the year - and repeatedly thanked her fans for always showing up - during both the good and bad times. It's been one heck of a Swift-filled decade, and we can't wait to see what the next 10 years have in store for Swift and her Swifties. "I grew up watching shows like this, and I would sit at home, wide-eyed, and watch artists in these attractive gowns and handsome suits stroll up and hold these awards". To win the award, she beat two illustrious albums - Thank U, Next by Ariana Grande and When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? by Billie Eilish. Presented to her by Carole King, Taylor delivered a speech where she let her fans know how much they meant to her. This year for me has been a lot. The public statement did not specifically address her accusations that it prevented her from singing her earlier titles or using them in the documentary.

"I can not believe that it's Carole King who gave me this award", Swift said. "May it continue. Thank you for being the reason I'm on this stage, from the very first day of my career to tonight ..."
