American Music Awards 2011: Full List of Winners!

by at . Comments

At last night's American Music Awards, there was Taylor Swift and there was everyone else. Donning an appropriately gold gown, she was the gold standard Sunday.

Swift took home top honors at the AMAs as the artist of the year.

"This is one of the craziest things that has ever happened to me," the singer, who also won that honor the last time this award show was held in 2009, said.

"Thank you to the fans. Please, never change."

Swift was also recognized as the favorite country female artist (a foregone conclusion), and her 2010 record Speak Now was dubbed the top country album.

The audience at L.A.'s Nokia Theatre was treated to a star-studded night of electronic, explosive, backing track-assisted performances, closed out by LMFAO.

The group delivered an appropriate medley of “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy And I Know It,” featuring a dance cameo by none other than Justin Bieber ...

There is absolutely nothing wrong with Taylor Swift. She's not lousy and she's very talented. She's one of the best we have presently. All haters should go get a mic, sing and still be decent. If they can't do all this at the same time, then they've failed!!!!!!!!

How can you guys hate Taylor? She's a great role model, she doesn't drink, she writes her own songs, she sings WITHOUT auto tune, She plays the music and when she does concerts she always thanks the musicians!

how can you you haters say that taylor swift doesn't deserve this award? She inspires people in any ages, she writes her own songs inspired by her own experiences, she truly DO sing. Unlike those others that makes their song interesting and popular because of the beat of the music, you don't call that singing and her songs are appropriate in any ages unlike others who just centers the meaning of the song about sex. So got anything to say? Use your common sense, she won that award because she fully deserved it.
