Taylor Swift won her third consecutive artist of the year prize at the American Music Awards, but she missed the show for a good reason: She said she's busy re-recording her songs' masters after her catalog was sold.

LOS ANGELES -- Taylor Swift won Artist of the Year at the 2020 American Music Awards on ABC Sunday evening, topping her own record for all-time AMAs wins set last year.

Though Swift won the show's top honor, it was The Weeknd who dominated with multiple wins. The 30-year-old won favorite soul/R&B male artist, favorite soul/R&B album for "After Hours" and favorite soul/R&B song for "Heartless" on Sunday, two days before the 2021 Grammy nominations are announced.

The Weeknd and Roddy Rich led the 2020 class of nominees, tied with eight nominations each including Artist of the Year alongside Justin Bieber, Post Malone and Swift. With a total of five nominations including New Artist of the Year and Collaboration of the Year, first-time nominee Megan Thee Stallion was the most-nominated female artist this year.
