Taylor Swift ties record for most VMA wins in one night

Taylor Swift swept the Video Music Awards (VMAs), winning in nine categories, including video of the year and song of the year, for “Anti-Hero.”

The celebrity won in every category in which she was nominated, including the night’s top prize, video of the year, given in recognition of the independently produced Anti-Hero trailer.

After previously winning for Bad Blood, You Need to Calm Down, and All Too Well: The Short Film, she became the first artist to win video of the year twice in a row and increased her record for the most victories in that category to four.

The celebrity, who is currently performing in the first $1 billion stadium tour in history, also won awards for best pop song, best pop director, best cinematography, and best visual effects for the movie Anti-Hero.

She was also awarded album of the year for Midnights, plus artist of the year and show of the summer.

The 33-year-old singer dedicated her wins to the art of songwriting.

Shakira became the first South American artist to win the coveted Video Vanguard Award. The crowd gave her a standing ovation after she performed a 10-minute medley of her biggest hits.

The Colombian star put on a spectacular show that saw her dance with knives, writhe in a fake cave and play a fiery guitar solo during Objection Tango.
