Dick Clark Productions and ABC have announced that Taylor Swift will be honored during the American Music Awards on November 24th.
Taylor Swift, who is nominated for five awards this year, will also be performing during the award show in celebration of her biggest hits.
Dick Clark Productions’ Executive Vice President of Programming and Development, Mark Bracco, stated that, “Taylor’s impact on music this decade is undeniable and her performances on the American Music Awards have been truly spectacular. 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!”
Following the release of her sixth No. 1 album, Lover, Swift is nominated for Artist of the Year, Favorite Music Video, Favorite Female Artist – Pop/Rock, Favorite Album – Pop/Rock, and Favorite Artist – Adult Contemporary.
Swift is also recognized as the artist with the most AMA wins this decade and as the female artist with the most AMA wins with 23 awards overall. She may also become the record holder for the most wins by an artist ever after this year’s show.

I said in an interview 13 years ago “I’m just hoping that I have a second album that does as well as the first and someday get to be a headliner, and always be the same person that I started out as.” Scrolling through your posts today has me feeling all the feelings & I want to thank you. Because of you, there was a 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th and 7th album. You guys made me into a headliner because you wanted to see me play. And your support all these years is what’s helped me stay true to that kid I was when I started out. #13yearsoftaylorswift
Congratulations on an amazing decade and career, Taylor. We can’t wait to see your performance.
