Taylor Swift Dominates American Music Awards

There's just no stopping Taylor Swift. The 19-year-old singer added to her collection of trophies last night by picking up five American Music Awards, including the coveted favorite artist of the year.

"I just want to say that music has never been ultimately about competition and to even be mentioned in a category with Michael Jackson who we'll miss and love forever is an unimaginable honor," Taylor said via satellite from London of being up against the King of Pop for the night's biggest award. Taylor, who also won favorite pop/rock female artist, favorite adult-contemporary artist, favorite country album for Fearless and favorite country female artist, added, "I'm sending my love to the Jackson family and Janet."

And the Jackson family was there to accept Taylor's love -- and Michael's awards -- as the late singer won four posthumous trophies, including favorite pop/rock artist and pop/rock album for his 2003 greatest hits set, Number Ones. Michael's winnings last night brought his AMA stash to a record-breaking 25.

"We love you, Michael," said Jermaine Jackson, who accepted the honor on his brother's behalf. "It's not just about the winnings, the awards, it's mainly the message. The message that Michael will live on forever ... and he saw good in everyone and he wanted them to do good. To start with love and let's love each other."

The rest of the show that was chock-full of performances, including American Idol's Adam Lambert making his mark with a tongue-wagging (literally) spectacle. As the last performer of the night, Glambert's onstage antics left some speechless, as he simulated sex and made out with a male band member.
