Taylor Swift Named Artist of the Year at 2013 American Music Awards
Soon, Taylor Swift will need a room just for her awards. At the 2013 AMAs on Sunday (Nov. 24), the singer was named Artist of the Year — the biggest award of the evening.
This is the third time Swift has received this honor, and she set the record for the most wins in the category along with an impressive collection of AMAs, with 14 of the gleaming beauties soon to be on display at the songstress’ residence.
When Swift’s name was called, beating out fellow Artist of the Year nominees including Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Bruno Mars, Rihanna and Justin Timberlake, she rose gracefully to her feet, appearing excited — but not surprised.
Swift traipsed up to stage, looking beautiful in her gold minidress and high heels, and said in a characteristically honest admission, “I’m really out of breath; I was really going hard with the ‘Wrecking Ball’ thing.” Miley Cyrus had just finished performing before the ‘Red’ star accepted her award, and everyone knows how Swift loves to dance, whether onstage or in the audience.
The superstar was eloquent as always in her speech, saying, “My lucky number is thirteen and you have made 2013 the most magical year of my life so far.”
“This validates that if you voted for this … it means we’re on the same page,” she added. “I have no idea what’s going to happen to me, but if you decided on something as wonderful as this, then we’re pretty much in this together aren’t we?”
Congratulations to Swift, the newly crowned 2013 AMAs Artist of the Year!
