During Tuesday night’s 2018 American Music Awards, all eyes were on the “I Did Something Bad” singer from the moment she arrived on the red carpet.
Yes, we loved her Balmain dress and boots. And her snake-filled performance was a sweet way to start off the three-hour telecast.
But perhaps it was the history-making awards that deserve all the credit when it comes to Taylor’s big night. It started when the singer won Tour of the Year.
“I want to thank my tour mates, Charli XCX and Camila Cabello…I want to thank my dancers, backup singers, the band,” she shared with the crowd. “Most of all, though, to the fans. If you didn’t want to hang out with us, we wouldn’t have been on an amazingly fun stadium tour. Thank you for everything. I love you guys.”
“Guys, I always look at albums as chapters in my life. And I’m so—to the fans, I’m so happy that you like this one. I’m so happy that this means that you like this one. But I have to be really honest with you about something,” she teased to the crowd. “I’m even more excited about the next chapter.” SAY WHAT?!
And if the night couldn’t get any better, Lenny Kravitz presented Taylor with the Artist of the Year award towards the end of the evening.
She concluded, ” I wanted to make a mention of the fact that this award and every single award given out tonight were voted on by the people and you know what else is voted on by the people? The midterm elections on November 6th. Get out and vote. I love you guys.”
Whitney Houston previously held the record for most AMAs won by a female artist. The next step will be to overtake Michael Jackson who earned 24 AMAs during his lifetime—making him the most-awarded winner.
What will happen one year from now? We may see something “Gorgeous” in the future.
