After the “Maroon” singer had a huge night at the American Music Awards last night, Swift’s dedicated fanbase of ‘Swifties’ are busy pondering her next musical move surely poised for future award show success.
Swift’s luck with award shows has been abundant in 2022! In August, she won the ‘moon man’ for Video Of The Year at the MTV Video Music Awards for the “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version) (10 Minute version),” and announced plans for her then-upcoming tenth studio album in her acceptance speech!

The “Forever Winter” singer only had one quintessential career component on her mind at Sunday’s AMA ceremony: her fans.
Swift won awards in every category she was nominated for, taking home six American Music Awards!
Some may say she was a ‘lucky one’ at last night’s ceremony as she won Favorite Music Video, Favorite Country Artist, Favorite Country Album, Favorite Pop Album, Favorite Female Pop Artist, and Artist Of The Year (per the AV Club), but Swift only had eyes for the those who helped her earn those awards.
In her acceptance speech for Artist Of The Year, Swift credited her fans for playing such a pivotal role in her blockbuster musical success in recent years.
“You know, in the past few years, I have released more music than I did in the entire decade preceding that, and I really feel like that’s down to the fact that you, the fans, made it clear that you wanted to hear lots of music that I would make,” the “Anti-Hero” singer told the audience.
Swift would go on to address her fans’ massive impact on her musical decisions.
“You encouraged me, and so, I found that the more music I made and the more music I put out, the happier I was, the more I kept that channel open and just kept creating, kept making things, and the more that happened, the more you guys were like yay, keep doing it,” she added, “and the happier I was, so I have the fans to thank, essentially, for my happiness, and I love you more than I can say,” Swift concluded.

Swift’s American Music Award sweep last night undoubtedly made her fans feel over the moon!
Swifties continued their love-fest on Twitter this morning, as “Taylor’s Version” began to trend.
After Swift acknowledged the fruitful creative process she’s endured over the past few years in her Artist Of The Year speech, fans not only fervently chatted about Swift’s re-recordings of her older records, they tweeted plenty of love for Swift’s third album, 2010’s “Speak Now!”
Countless tweets began pouring in from Swifties expressing their wish for the LP to be Swift’s next choice for her ‘Taylor’s Version’ re-recording project. Two rerecordings have already been released: 2008’s “Fearless” and 2012’s “Red.”
A Swiftie excitedly expressed their foresight for their mood for when Swift eventually releases “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version).”
“I’m literally going to go rabid when ‘Speak Now Taylor’s Version’ comes out,” they tweeted.
“All I’m saying is… when speak now (Taylor’s version) gets released, I want ‘Haunted’ and ‘Enchanted’ to have music videos,” another “Speak Now” devotee tweeted.
“i fear for the day i possess speak now taylor’s version from the vault songs,” an excited Swiftie said.
Another Swiftie shared a unique perspective on the “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)”s release.
“one reason i’m a lil sad abt the TVs is we’re going to lose the way to distinguish older swifties lmaooo,” they began in their thread, which had been in response to a tweet that read, “you can tell how long someone has been a swiftie by simply asking them how they feel about speak now.”
“like i fathomed it when i was 13, on my ipod touch being driven to swim practice, lipsynching “Please Don’t Be In Love With Someone Else” at the rainy window,” they continued. “and i’m so delighted for everyone who gets a chance to discover/learn the joys of these albums! and at the same time, those of us who have BEEN out here simping for speak now, debut, etc-are gonna feel a little protective. u couldn’t fathom ‘cold as you’ til now?”
They concluded by adding, “it’s like- do you like Speak Now for the gem that it is? or do u just love Taylor Swift, and everything she makes from folklore on? which is fair and valid, AND it feels like these albums are getting absorbed into a bigger Taylor’s Version phenomenon, moreso than their original context.”
