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 ...

YAY! All the awards were won by artists who deserve them! Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Lady Antebellum, Adele. And Taylor I can promise you that I will never stop being your fan, as long as you don't stop making amazing music and being an inspiration! That girl has real talent and real passion. She's also not afraid to dream big

This is a comment and opinion board, but jeez Emily, IMO do you have to talk like a skank? And whether or not any of us likes Taylor Swift's music, she has done a lot for the music industry and she is good to her fans and her concerts are always sell-outs, world wide. She's sassy and cute. You won't catch her writhing like a cat in heat against the bodies of half nude male dancers. People of all ages enjoy her music. She has earned her accolades like the class act she is.
