Swift has earned the most AMAs of any female artist with 23 wins — four of those for Artist of the Year — and has also won the most AMAs this decade than any other performer. If Swift nabs more wins at the 2019 AMAs, she will surpass Michael Jackson’s record of 24 wins. The AMAs are fan-voted, with voting available through Google until Nov. 20.
The 2019 AMAs will celebrate the past decade with performances that revisit popular music across genres. The AMAs have yet to release their full list of performers for the awards show.
Swift’s award comes after the release of her seventh studio album, “Lover,” in August. To celebrate the album’s release, Swift teamed up with Stella McCartney for a fashion merchandise collection.
