Taylor Swift swept the board at the American Music Awards, taking home all six of the awards she was nominated for.

The pop megastar won the biggest prize of the night, Artist of the Year, for the seventh time and her re-recorded ‘Red (Taylor’s Version)' was crowned Favourite Pop Album and Favourite Country Album.

Taylor's music video for ‘All Too Well (Taylor's Version)' – which stars Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien – was named Favourite Music Video

The ‘Shake It Off' hitmaker was also named Favourite Female Pop Artist and Female Country Artist.

The 32-year-old musician is now the most-awarded star in the history of the AMAs with 40 wins, followed by Michael Jackson (26), Whitney Houston (22) and Kenny Rogers (19).

During her acceptance speech for Artist of the Year at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday (20.11.22), the ‘Karma' hitmaker admitted she has her fans to thank for her “happiness”.

She said: “In the past few years, I have released more music than I did in the decade preceding that.

“I really feel like that’s down to the fact that you, the fans, made it clear that you wanted to hear lots of music … I found that the more music I made [and] the more music I put out, the happier I was.”

She continued: “I have the fans to thank, essentially, for my happiness. I love you more than I can say. I cannot express how unbelievable it is to me that I get to do this and that you still care. So, thank you underlined with 13 exclamation points.”

Beyonce's haul included Favourite Female R'n'B Artist and Favourite R'n'B Album for ‘Renaissance'.

K-Pop megastars BTS received two awards for Favourite Group and Favourite K-Pop Artist and made history as they've won the former prize four times.

Harry Styles, Kendrick Lamar and Bad Bunny all took home two prizes each.

Lionel Richie was honoured with this year's Icon Award.

Performers included Stevie Wonder, Pink, Dove Cameron, and special guest Cardi B joined GloRilla for a surprise performance of ‘Tomorrow 2'.

The bash was hosted by Wayne Brady.
