LOS ANGELES – Taylor Swift was crowned artist of the year at the American Music Awards for a second time.

“This is so crazy!” the country superstar said after she beat such contenders as Adele, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry to capture all three awards that she was nominated for at Sunday’s ceremony, including artist of the year, the show’s highest accolade that she previously claimed in 2009.

“I ended up writing the record by myself, so the fact that you would honor it this way, you have no idea what this means to me,” Swift said after winning the trophy for favorite country album for “Speak Now.” She also won the country female artist award.
