Also, some other people won some other stuff.
At last night’s Billboard Awards, Taylor Swift reached a new milestone in her career, becoming the award show’s most decorated artist. Her eight awards (out of 14 nods), including one for Best Artist, bring her Billboard total to twenty, more than the previous record holder, Garth Brooks.
All of the awards.
Taylor had more than one reason to celebrate on Sunday though, since the award show coincided with the release of her music video for Bad Blood, featuring the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss, Zendaya, Ellie Goulding, Hayley Williams and many more. The video premiered at the awards, after a brief introduction from the woman of the hour. Taylor also won a special achievement award chosen by fan voting.
"This is such a good night," Swift enthused as she collected the night's big prize, top artist. Earlier, after winning top Billboard 200 album for "1989," she said "you guys embraced change, embraced me doing something new. I'll never forget it."
The second biggest winner of the night was Sam Smith, who competed in 13 categories, including several against Swift herself. He won in coveted categories like top male artist and new artist. Smith, 22, who had received 13 nominations to Swift's 14, also won for top radio songs artist.
The newly-minted four-piece One Direction was another multiple winner, winning top touring artist and top duo or group, while Iggy Azalea was a triple winner for top rap artist, rap song and top streaming artist.
