Taylor Swift won the most prestigious honour on Sunday at the American Music Awards when she was named Artist of the Year at the world’s largest fan-voted ceremony.

The Anti-Hero singer thanked voters for supporting her after releasing four original albums and two re-recordings in the last three years.

“I cannot express how unbelievable it is to me that I still do this and that you still care,” she said on stage at the awards show in Los Angeles.

Earlier, Swift’s re-recording of her 2012 record Red took the trophy for Favourite Pop Album. The 32-year-old singer has been making new versions of albums from her past after a dispute with her former record label.

“I cannot tell you how much my re-recorded albums mean to me, but I never expected or assumed they’d mean anything to you,” she said.

Swift did not mention last week’s controversy over Ticketmaster’s sales for her upcoming tour, which were filled with glitches and prompted the company to apologise to her.

The 32-year-old’s six wins on Sunday night which brings her career total to an even 40. This extends her already considerable lead as the most-awarded artist in the show’s 50-year history. 

The night’s top nominee, Bad Bunny, scored two prizes from eight nominations, with Beyoncé, Harry Styles, BTS, Morgan Wallen, Kendrick Lamar, Wizkid and Tems also taking home a pair of awards.

Singer Pink opened the awards show dancing and singing on roller skates to her upbeat song Never Gonna Not Dance Again.

Comedian and host Wayne Brady rapped in his monologue. “Ain’t nobody getting slapped tonight,” Brady joked, referencing Will Smith’s infamous attack on Chris Rock at the Oscars.

Dove Cameron, a former Disney Channel actress who reached the Billboard charts this year with the pop single Boyfriend, earned the first trophy of the night with her best new artist win.

Machine Gun Kelly, wearing a purple suit with long silver spikes, was named Favourite Rock Artist.

BTS won Favourite Pop Duo or Group for the fourth time, which makes them the most awarded group in the history of the category.
