Taylor Swift screamed with excitement when she heard her name called at the iHeart Radio Music Awards yesterday.
Taylor Swift was named Artist of the Year at the iHeart Radio Music Awards last night.
The 24-year-old singer took home three prizes in total at the ceremony held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Alongside the top gong, she also scored Song of the Year for Shake It Off and Best Lyrics for Blank Space.
It’s hardly the first time the megastar has been honoured, but her reaction could almost have suggested otherwise. Taylor was pictured screaming with elation, her hair flying all over the place, when her name was called yesterday.
“I’m so proud of the fact that having done this for ten years now, we’ve gotten closer and closer with each year, not further apart,” Taylor thanked her fans in her acceptance speech. “I love knowing your stories, thank you for joking around with me on Instagram and Twitter and Tumblr. You make me so happy.”
Others nominated for Artist of the Year last night were Iggy Azalea, Luke Bryan, Ariana Grande and Sam Smith.
However, not all of them went home empty handed, with Sam picking up Best New Artist.
Taylor may have praised her fans on stage, but they didn’t quite make the cut for Best Fan Army – that honour went to 5 Seconds of Summer’s 5SOSFAM.
Meanwhile, Jeremih and YG triumphed in the Hip Hop/R&B Song of the Year category with Don’t Tell Em, while Jason Aldean picked up Country Song of the Year with Burnin’ It Down.
Performers last night included Rihanna, Jason Derulo and Nick Jonas, while Taylor, Beyoncé Knowles, Jay Z, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams and Ariana presented.
