Just a year after surpassing Whitney Houston as the American Music Awards’ most awarded female artist (as we reported here), Taylor Swift – with 23 of the prism shaped trophies on her mantle – entered this year’s ceremony with multiple nominations and a chance to increase her collection.
Now, less than hour into this year’s telecast, the diva’s added two more awards to her name – a feat that’s made her the most awarded overall in the show’s history.
See her acceptance speech inside:
Moments ago Swift’s “Lover” album bested Billie Eilish’s “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” and Ariana Grande‘s “thank u, next” in the Favorite Album Pop/Rock category, an accomplishment that marked the 25th win of her career. Besting the all time record of King of Pop Michael Jackson‘s 24 wins, Taylor is now the most awarded at the ceremony ever.
What’s more, she stands to extend that record tonight as she is nominated for other categories and the show has just begun!
