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."

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 ...
