Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake earned the top honors at the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday.
The “Mirrors” singer took home three awards at Sunday’s show at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles, while Swift lead the pack with four awards including Artist of the Year.
Timberlake, who performed “Drink You Away” during the telecast, won in the categories of Favorite Soul/R&B Male Artist, Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist, and Favorite Soul/R&B Album.
Rihanna scored two awards including Favorite Female Soul/R&B Artist and the first-ever Icon Award, which was presented to her by Jay Z and her mother Monica Fenty.
“Right now, I can’t believe that at 25 years old, I’m holding an Icon Award,” said Rihanna, who performed “Diamonds.” “That is weird to even say out loud.”
Two-time winners Macklemore & Ryan Lewis beat out Jay Z and Kendrick Lamar in the Rap/Hip-Hop categories.
