Taylor Swift dominates the 2022 American Music Awards
Taylor Swift won all six categories for which she was nominated at the 2022 American Music Awards on Sunday.
The Shake It Off singer took home the top honor of the night, Entertainer of the Year, as well as Favorite Female Pop Artist and Favorite Female Country Artist.
His 2012 re-recording of Red, Red (Taylor’s Version) won Favorite Country Album and Favorite Pop Album, while All Too Well: The Short Film won Favorite Music Video.
In her acceptance speech for Favorite Pop Album, she said, “This album is a re-recorded album, and I can’t tell you how much my re-recorded albums mean to me. I’ve never thought or assumed they would mean something to you, so I can’t thank you enough for caring about this album that I’m so proud of.”
Red’s 2021 reissue featured previously unreleased songs, re-recorded vocals, and tweaks to the musical arrangements, prompting award shows to consider it alone.
Other big winners at the AMAs include Beyoncé, who won Favorite R&B Artist and Favorite R&B Album for Renaissance; Kendrick Lamar, who was named favorite male hip-hop artist and won favorite hip-hop album for Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers; and Harry Styles, who was crowned Favorite Male Pop Artist and won Favorite Pop Song for As It Was.
