Taylor Swift Amas
November 21, 2011 by staff
She tied for most wins with British singer Adele, who also earned three trophies for female pop artist, best album with smash hit 21 and top adult contemporary performer.
But Adele, who came into the awards show as the most-nominated singer with four nods, lost artist of the year to Swift, who seemed genuinely surprised by the upset victory.
“This is one of the craziest things that has ever happened to me,” Swift said. “I have no idea what I’m supposed to say. I did not think this was going to happen.”
Along with year’s top artist, Swift claimed AMA trophies for favorite female country artist for the second straight year, and she nabbed best country album with her Speak Now.
Adele, who is recovering from vocal cord surgery, was not on hand to accept her awards.
Rapper Nicki Minaj was the night’s other big winner with two AMAs in the rap or hip-hop category: favorite artist and best album for her Pink Friday.
Minaj opened the show singing her smash hit single Super Bass in a metallic outfit that had two large speakers on her bottom, and after winning best hip-hop album for Pink Friday was overcome with emotion.
“This one could actually make me cry,” Minaj said onstage before wiping away tears. “I can’t believe this is happening.”
Elsewhere, the AMA awards were split among numerous acts.
Rounding out the country awards with Swift were Blake Shelton for best male artist and Lady Antebellum best group.
Maroon 5 picked up the honor for best pop or rock group behind current hit Moves Like Jagger, and Bruno Mars rounded out the pop category with an AMA trophy for best male artist.
Among R&B acts, Rihanna grabbed best album with Loud, winning over ex-boyfriend Chris Brown and his F.A.M.E. Usher was named favorite R&B male artist and Beyonce best female.
