Real reason why Taylor Swift skipped the American Music Awards 2020

Taylor Swift won big at the 2020 American Music Awards. "So it's been incredible, and I can't wait for you to hear it", Swift said in a pre-recorded video.

Previous year music manager Scooter Braun - who manages Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande - announced that his Ithaca Holdings company had acquired Big Machine Label Group, the home to Swift's first six albums.

The singer had earlier revealed she will re-record five albums after Scooter Braun sold her master recordings. The song also won Favorite Song (country), while the Canadian pop star earned his third award that night in Favorite Male Artist (pop/rock) category.

Of course, it's just another reminder that she's sticking to her word amid the bitter feud with Scooter - whom she claims wouldn't even entertain selling her back her masters without her signing an NDA first promising not to bash him in public.


The "Shake It Off" hitmaker was crowned Artist of the Year at the ceremony on Sunday night, and also won Favourite Female Artist (Pop/Rock) and Favourite Music Video for "cardigan".

He gave no reason for his appearance, which confused fans on social media, but it appeared to be an artistic choice that started with his March album cover where he sported a bloodied and broken nose.

This year the AMAs, which typically awards one Latin honor, launched more categories in the genre.

"It has been a long year and now that 2020 is coming to an end it's time to remember that we are one country, y'all".


Justin and Shawn's "Monster" will feature on the latter's upcoming album, Wonder.

Becky G - who burst on the music scene in 2014 with the pop hit "Shower" but has recently had success singing in Spanish and launching hits on the Latin charts - won favorite Latin female artist. Released in late July, the song is the first taste of new music the country duo has put out since "10,000 Hours", which hit No. 1 in January, and is an exercise in musical prowess and technical expertise: Not only do the vocal runs highlight Mooney's voice at the absolute top of its game (as he proved admirably at the AMAs), but Smyers plays every instrument on the track, according to Rolling Stone.

Rapper Megan Thee Stallion marked her debut performance at the American Music Awards with Body and later accepted the best rap/hip-hop song trophy for her raunchy summer collaboration WAP with Cardi B.
