The 23-year-old "Love Story" hitmaker bagged the favourite country female artist, favourite country album, favourite pop/rock female artist and artist of the year award at the AMA, which was held in Los Angeles last evening, reported Ace Showbiz.

"I'm 23 and I have no idea what's going to happen to me in my life. But if (the fans) decided on something as wonderful as this (award), then we're pretty much in it together," Swift said in her acceptance speech.

Timberlake, 32, was given the favourite pop/rock male artist, favourite soul/R&B male artist and favourite soul/R&B album award at the event.

Other big winners include, Rihanna and One Direction, with the band managing to take home the favourite pop/rock band and favourite pop/rock album award.

The event kicked off with Katy Perry gracing the stage to perform her newest single, "Unconditionally".

Timberlake brought along his touring band the Tennessee Kids to help him sing "Drink You Away".

Making their first appearance at the AMAs, One Direction walked onto the stage after Emma Roberts introduced them and called them her "favourite band."

The five boys excited fans when they played "Story of My Life" which was taken from their forthcoming 'Midnight Memories' album.

Pop star Miley Cyrus was joined by a giant kitten to sing her "Wrecking Ball" during her performance. The cute cat appeared on the large screen behind the singer and lip-synced to the song.
