Taylor Swift wins artist of the year at iHeartRadio Awards: 'To the fans, it's completely up to you' – USA TODAY

Taylor Swift is beginning National Poetry Month as the “Artist of the Year” for the iHeartRadio Music Awards.
The Eras Tour singer didn’t walk the yellow carpet or appear at the awards show in Los Angeles. The Backstreet Boys’ AJ McLean and N’Sync’s Lance Bass introduced her award at the Dolby Theatre.
“I wanted to say thank you so much to anyone who voted for this award,” the singer said in a recorded video. “To the fans, it’s completely up to you to choose how you spend your time, what concerts you want to go to, what music do you want to make the soundtrack to your life, and to anyone who has included me in those choices, I’m so so so thankful for that.”
Swift was up for ten awards, and she took home six (in bold below). The iHeartRadio Music Awards celebrate the most-played artists and songs throughout the past year.
Swift has attended the awards show five times starting in 2015 and culminating last year when she received the Innovator Award.
“You have to give yourself permission to fail,” she said in her shimmering “Midnights” bodysuit. “I try as hard as I can not to fail because it’s embarrassing, but I do give myself permission to and you should, too. Go easy on yourselves, and just make the right choices that feel right for you. And someday someone might think that you’ve been innovative.”
This year, Beyoncé will receive the Innovator Award.
Swift’s 11th album era, “The Tortured Poets Department,” comes out in 18 days.
