Taylor Swift continued her magical year at Sunday's AMAs as she won five trophies, including artist of the year. Swift won the top honor over late music icon Michael Jackson, who earlier had emerged victorious in all four categories that he was nominated. His awards were accepted by his brother, Jermaine Jackson, who paid tribute by wearing the King of Pop's trademark white glove. Performers at the American Music Awards included Janet Jackson, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Adam Lambert and Carrie Underwood.
