Swift performed a medley of some of her biggest hits, including songs at the heart of her rights dispute with her former label. The singer took home five trophies and was named the AMA's Artist of the Decade.
Taylor Swift's button-down shirt with her album names printed on it. I also really love my record label, Universal Republic ... "I've got this bad stage fright, so it's a leap of courage every night to get out there", Twain revealed. "I got tampons in here, a flask of tequila, some condoms".
In a statement, the company disagreed with her claims: "Since Taylor's decision to leave Big Machine last fall, we have continued to honour all of her requests to license her catalog to third parties as she promotes her current record in which we do not financially participate".
She didn't stop there though. And not a lot of them are things that haven't been public...
Lizzo, who was nominated for three honors but walked away empty handed, screamed at the top of her lungs while performing the ballad "Jerome", one of several songs from her album that earned her a leading eight Grammy nominations.
"I was probably a lot more nervous then", Twain told ET. "It's been a lot of good and a lot of really complicated". She again thanked them for their unwavering support before sharing that she looked forward to continuously creating art for them.
The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our daily-ish ratings column do not reflect a show's overall performance, given the increases in delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms.
Ciara, who was the night's host, went with blue for the red carpet but changed into different outfits on stage. She looked better than ever on the red carpet, and is that a new tattoo we see??! Ofira jewels hoops, along with a combination of Lorraine Schwartz and Ofira Jewels black diamond rings topped off her sleek outfit! "Artist of the Decade?"
While we hinted at the speeches from those last two massive categories (above), you need to watch them in full! The shortened video showed her saying, "Taylor is the epitome of a hard worker, talent". Or was the shadiness far too much?
Thoughts, Perezcious readers?? Did she deliver?
