Taylor Swift recently made history after clinching ten awards at this year's Billboard Music Awards.

The 33-year-old singer's been on a roll this year.

Not only has she embarked on a multi-million dollar world tour, but she has also managed to secure herself a handful of new awards - not that she was short on any.

Back in September, Swift managed to win a whopping nine awards at the VMA's. Her outstanding achievements included winning the night's most coveted prizes including Video of the Year and Song of the Year, for her hit track 'Anti-Hero' from her album Midnights.

The chart-topping artist also claimed the titles of Best Direction and Best Pop Video showcasing her remarkable versatility and artistry across various aspects of music and video production.

And it didn't stop there.

Swift also took home the awards for Best Artist, Visual Effects, Album of the Year, Show of the Summer, and Best Cinematography - a history-making night that's for sure.

And Sunday night's Billboard Awards was no different. Just when you think this woman can't possibly top her wins, she goes and secures herself ten new awards - yeah you read that right. Ten.

This time, the 'Love Story' hitmaker made history at the Billboard Music Awards after being nominated a total of 20 times in a range of categories including Top Artist, Top Female Artist, Country Female Artist, and Top Song Sales Artist.

Out of those, Swift swept up half of the awards, earning herself the title of the most-awarded female artist at the prestigious event, tying with rapper Drake for the most awards overall.

In a video posted to X, formerly known as Twitter, by the official Billboard account as well as The Eras Tour account, she thanked her fans for all their love and support throughout her career.

"Well this is unreal," she said in the acceptance speech, shot backstage at at Eras Tour show. "The fact that you guys have given me 10 Billboard Awards — I’m talking to the fans specifically. None of this happens without you."

"The Billboards base everything off of what you are listening to and what you’re passionate about, and I’m so honored that this year you made The Eras Tour so magical," she continued. "You went and saw the movie, you cared about my re-recordings. I just love you so much."

The star also described herself as "the luckiest person in the world."

"I feel like the luckiest person in the world to have you in my corner and caring about the music that I make,” she added. "So thank you — thank you, thank you, thank you ten million times - for this."

Billboard reported that Swift was the biggest female winner of the night, and second only to Morgan Wallen’s 11 wins overall.

Now, the 33-year-old has a total of 39 BBMAs, just like Drake.

Other winners on the night included the likes of New Jeans, Jungkook, SZA, Bad Bunny and Miley Cyrus.

Swift is currently on the international leg of her Eras Tour. After completing her shows in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, she will be heading across the country to São Paulo next weekend.

Congratulations to Taylor!
