Taylor Swift sweeps American Music Awards with 6 wins
The 32-year-old singer-songwriter’s big win came on the heels of her debacle with Ticketmaster. Buying tickets for her Eras Tour was chaotic when the site crashed last week — leaving thousands of fans hanging and complaining
Taylor Swift spent the night of 20 November winning all six categories she was nominated in at the 2022 American Music Awards.
Three of the awards were for her rerecorded album Red — including the short film for the 10-minute-version of Swift’s song “All Too Well,” starring Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien, which won Favorite Music Video.
The 32-year-old singer-songwriter likewise took home Artist of the Year, Favorite Female Pop Artist, Favorite Pop Album, Favorite Female Country Artist, and Favorite Country Album trophies.
“You, the fans, made it clear that you wanted to hear lots of music that I would make. You encouraged me. So, I found that the more music I made and the more music I put out, the happier I was. I have the fans to think essentially for my happiness, and I love you more than I can say,” Swift said in her speech.
Lionel Richie received the 2022 Icon Award, while Bad Bunny bagged Favorite Male Latin Artist and Favorite Latin Album.
Beyoncé, meanwhile, took home Favorite Female R&B Artist and Favorite R&B Album.
Swift’s sweep of the AMAs came on the heels of her debacle with Ticketmaster. Buying tickets for her Eras Tour was chaotic when the site crashed last week — leaving thousands of fans hanging and complaining.
“I’m not going to make excuses for anyone because we asked them, multiple times, if they could handle this kind of demand and we were assured they could. It’s truly amazing that 2.4 million people got tickets, but it really pisses me off that a lot of them feel like they went through several bear attacks to get them,” Swift wrote on Instagram.
Ticketmaster canceled the public sale due to “extraordinarily high demands on ticketing systems and insufficient remaining ticket inventory to meet that demand.”
Swift’s Eras Tour kicks off in Glendale, Arizona on 17 March 2023.
