We’re sure this honor of being called THE artist of the decade is beyond anything in Taylor’s Wildest Dreams. The AMA’s announced her win on Twitter, saying “She’s won more AMAs than anyone this decade. She’s a five-time 2019 AMAs nominee” And she’s performing at this year’s AMAs LIVE on Nov. 24. Taylor Swift is our ARTIST OF THE DECADE! Taylor, who already won 24 American Music Awards, as well as 295 awards in total over her long career, has more “artist of the year” wins than anybody else in AMA history. The last time Taylor was nominated for an American Music Award was just last year, in 2018, when Reputation was up for Artist of the Year, Tour of the Year, Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist, and Favorite Pop/Rock Album.
And needless to say she won each of those awards. The American Music Awards will air on November 24th of this year, and Taylor will take the stage to perform a medley of her songs throughout her career. Mark Bracco, executive vice president of programming, said in a statement “We’re thrilled to honor 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!” Since the decade started in 2010, Taylor has released five albums including Speak Now in 2010, Red in 2012, 1989 in 2014, Reputation in 2017, and of course Lover earlier this year. So we really can’t wait to hear what songs she chooses to sing during her performance. But we bet a fan favorite “You need to clam down” will be on that set list. So far, she’s the only person who is confirmed to perform at the show next month.
On top of being named the artist of the decade, Taylor is also nominated for the “Artist of the Year” award this year. Other artists nominated in the same category are Ariana Grande, Halsey, Drake, and Post Malone. Posty’s new album has generated a lot of buzz recently, but I think he knows he’s got some tough competition. Taylor is up for 5 awards this year total. Besides artist of the year she’s also up for Favorite Pop/Rock Album, Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist, Favorite Music Video for ‘You Need to Calm Down’, and Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist. And on top of all that, she’s also a favorite to win Album of the Year at the Grammys in January. Just WOW!
