Taylor Swift To Be Crowned Artist Of The Decade At AMAs

Taylor Swift may be making history once again at the upcoming 2019 American Music Awards next month. The 29-year-old will receive the coveted Artist of the Decade Award and perform at the 47th annual awards ceremony. Swift is nominated for five awards at this year’s ceremonies, including Artist of the Year, Favorite Music Video, Favorite Female Artist — Pop/Rock, Favorite Album — Pop/Rock (for her latest project Lover), and Favorite Artist — Adult Contemporary.

The AMAs are going to be a big night for Swift, who has won more AMAs than any other artist this decade, and last year made history for being the female artist with the most AMAs wins, surpassing Whitney Houston. The 23-time AMAs winner has the chance this year to break Michael Jackson‘s record for most wins as well, who had 24.

“Taylor’s impact on music this decade is undeniable and her performances on the American Music Awards have been truly spectacular,” said Mark Bracco, executive vice president of programming and development at Dick Clark Productions. “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!”

The American Music Awards air live on ABC from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on Nov. 24.
