“Taylor’s impact on music this decade is undeniable and her performances on the American Music Awards have truly been spectacular,” Dick Clark Productions EVP of programming and development Mark Bacco said. “We’re thrilled to honor her as our artist of the decade and can’t wait for her to blow everyone away with an epic, career-spanning performance unlike any other!”
The 2019 AMAs will air live on ABC. Ariana Grande and Post Malone are also nominated for multiple awards.
Swift released her seventh studio album, Lover, in August. She thanked fans for their support last week on the 13th anniversary of her debut, self-titled album.
