Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake were the big winners at the American Music Awards, taking home 4 and 3 awards respectively with One Direction honoured with 2 gongs.
23-year-old Swift swept the board last night (Nov 24) picking up the coveted Artist of the Year Award as well as Favourite Female Artist – Pop and Rock, Favourite Female Artist – Country and the award for Favourite Country Album for Red.
After picking up the top award of the night Swift said: "My lucky number is 13, and so far you guys have made 2013 the most magical year so far," Swift said while accepting 'Artist of the Year'.
"I'm 23 and I have no idea what's going to happen to me... I love you so much. It's unbelievable."
32-year-old Justin Timberlake took home the prize for Favourite Male Artist - Soul/R&B as well as Favourite Male Artist - Pop/Rock and Favourite Album - Soul/R&B for The 20/20 Experience
One Direction picked up awards for Favourite Band, Duo or Group - Pop/Rock and Favourite Album - Pop/Rock awards.
The audience were stunned when one of the biggest awards, Single of the Year, didn't go to Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines or to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis for Thrift Shop. Instead the gong went to to Florida Georgia Line featuring Nelly for Cruise.
