With 23 career wins to her credit, Taylor Swift entered the 2021 Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs) as the most decorated female act in the show’s history.
Nominated for four trophies at this year’s ceremony (Top Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, and Top Female Artist), Swift stood the chance to extend that record – furthering the distance between herself and her nearest competitor, Adele (who boasts 18 wins to her credit to date).
Much to the delight of her fans (affectionately called #Swifties), look inside to see just how Taylor accomplished the feat.
Besting the competition in the Top Billboard 200 Artist and Top Female Artist categories (thanks to a year of gargantuan sales attached to her 2020 albums, ‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore’), Swift pushed her career total to 25 wins – the most of any female artist in history.
Look below to see how her nearest competitors compare.
