Taylor Swift, or should we say, the new Queen of Pop, has taken the records by storm after she beat the long standing King of Pop, Micheal Jackson’s record by clinching a total of 29 awards since the inception of the American Music Awards.

At the 2019 American Music Awards, which held on Sunday, the 24th of November, 2019, in California, United States, Swift was the highlight of the event, winning six awards which catapulted her five places ahead of the late Michael Jackson, who has 24 awards to his name.

Among the six awards, Swift bagged the prizes for Artiste of the Year and Artiste of the Decade.

The Artist of the Decade award was presented to her by Carole King. Swift appreciated King for his unique songs and told the crowd how much his music has touched her life and her family.

“I cannot believe that it’s Carole King who gave me this award,” Swift said. “My parents are here tonight and they would listen to all of your records in high school.”

To celebrate her win for Artist of the Decade award, she performed a medley of her greatest songs so far, beginning with “The Man”, a track from her latest album, “Lover.”
