Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish Sweep American Music Awards

LOS ANGELES – Fans’ votes confirmed teenage singer-songwriter Billie Eilish as an industry favorite Sunday night at the American Music Awards in California, earning accolades with pop star Taylor Swift, who won five prizes and was named artist of the decade.

Both 17-year-old Eilish and Swift, 29, were among those to perform at the event held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, which serves as the precursor to the prestigious Grammys – where winners are determined by industry professionals instead of fan voting.

Swift won artist of the year, favorite music video, favorite pop singer, favorite adult contemporary artist, and favorite pop album in this year’s awards.

She was also named “Artist of the Decade” 2010-2020, joining a club with iconic members such as Elvis Presley (1950), The Beatles (1960), Stevie Wonder (1970) and Michael Jackson (1980).

Sunday night also marked Swift breaking Jackson’s record as the most awarded person in the awards’ history, with 29 awards compared to the King of Pop’s 24.

On the other hand, young Eilish – with just one album to her name – confirmed she belonged on the big stage by taking home the best alternative artist and best new artist awards.

Eilish was recognized for her first album “When We Fall Sleep, Where Do We Go?” – also nominated for album of the year at the Grammy – which has revolutionized the alternative and commercial music scene.
