Beaming Taylor Swift is now the most decorated artist in American Music Awards history on a night where she claimed victory over her former record label.

The megastar now has 29 awards to her name after collecting six gongs - overtaking legend Michael Jackson.

She beat Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande for Favorite Album: Pop/Rock for 'Lover' early on into the ceremony.

That levelled things up with MJ but there was more to come.

In the final moments of the show, she was also named Artist of the Year.

The star did a medley of some of her biggest songs, including Love Story, I Knew You Were Trouble and Blank Space.

Taylor toasted her fans as she was named artist of the decade, saying the honour celebrated ten years of "hard work and of art and of fun and memories".

She added: "All that matters to me is the memories I have had with you guys, with you the fans, over the years.

"We've had fun, incredible, exhilarating, extraordinary times together and may it continue. I am so lucky to get to do this."

Taylor was introduced by singer-songwriter Carole King, who said "her lyrics resonate across the generations, her songs touch everyone and her impact around the world is extraordinary".

Mark Bracco, Executive Vice Pesident of programming & development at Dick Clark productions said: “Taylor’s impact on music this decade is undeniable and her performances on the American Music Awards have been truly spectacular.

“We’re thrilled to honour her as our Artist of the Decade and can’t wait for her to blow everyone away with an epic, career-spanning performance unlike any other!”
