American Music Awards: Taylor Swift again voted Artist of the Year?

It goes without saying that Taylor Swift fans love Taylor Swift. They tend to show that love by voting for her en masse at fan-voted awards shows. This includes the American Music Awards. Taylor Swift holds the record for most Entertainer of the Year wins with six. She is nominated again this year and almost never loses. The thing is, though, that she’s nominated against one of the only people she’s ever lost to.

Swift won Entertainer of the Year at the AMAs in 2009, 2011, 2013, 2018, 2019 and 2020. There were only two years when she was nominated but lost. In 2015, she was beaten by British boy band A directionand in 2021 it is overtaken by the K-pop group BTS. It goes to show that the only thing that can stop Swifties is the power of a boy band fandom. Luckily for Swift, none of those bands are nominated against her this year…not in their entirety anyway.

The members of One Direction broke up, and Harry StylesSolo career took off. This year he released a hit album, “Harry’s House”, which still topped Billboard’s 200 albums chart. And that album produced a one-single blockbuster, “As It Was,” which spent 15 weeks at the top of the Hot 100, the fourth longest reign in card history. Suffice to say that he is popular. But is he as popular on his own as he was with four other One Directioners?

Well, we have evidence of a direct confrontation between Swift and Styles. They competed for video of the year at the MTV Video Music Awards, where Swift’s “All Too Well” beat Styles’ “As It Was”. Styles was also up for Entertainer of the Year at the VMAs, but lost to bad bunny, another of his AMA rivals. So can we count Styles for the win in November?

As of this writing, Swift is the frontrunner for Entertainer of the Year with odds of 15/2 based on the combined predictions Gold Derby users. Styles is in second with odds of 17/2, then Bad Bunny is third with odds of 19/2. So it’s not necessarily a done deal deal for Swift, but lucky number seven is within reach.
