Taylor Swift Brings Home The Most Hardware At The AMA Awards

Taylor Swift won all three of her bids at this year's 39th annual American Music Awards including the big prize of Artist of the Year as well as Favorite Country Album ("Speak Now") and Favorite Country Female Artist. These victories are in marked contrast to a year ago when Swift did not even contend for Artist of the Year and won only the country crooner prize. In 2009, she had been the queen of the AMAs, taking home five awards include Artist of the Year and three singing races (country, pop and adult contemporary).

Among those Swift edged out for the top award was the absent Adele, who had led with four bids. The ailing British singer-songwriter did prevail in her other three races -- Favorite Female Pop Artist, Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist and Favorite Pop/Rock Album ("21").

"This is one of the craziest things that has ever happened to me," the singer told the audience at Los Angeles's Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. "Thank you to the fans. Please, never change."

Lady Antebellum repeated as Favorite Country Duo/Group while Blake Shelton won his first Favorite Male Country Artist.
