“I’m Blown Away” – Taylor Swift Reigns Supreme at 2023 MTV VMA, Sets new Record With Nine Wins
Taylor Swift had a massive night at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards, scoring a whopping nine awards, securing the record for the most wins in a single night. This also bumped up her total VMA count to 23, putting her just behind Beyoncé with 26 and ahead of Madonna’s 20 wins.
Swift’s nine wins were in the categories: Video of the Year, Aritst of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop, Best Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects, Show of the Summer, and Album of the Year.
She was especially thrilled to win Video of the Year, which marked her fourth time taking home the coveted trophy. Taylor expressed her gratitude to the MTV VMA community, emphasizing how much fan support meant to her. She also reminisced about her eventful year and the joy of her ongoing tour.
“I’ve just been on a tour that has been the most joyful and exhilarating experience,” she said. “And we’re not even halfway done with it. It’s really felt like the adventure of a lifetime this past year. I cannot believe that it was a year ago at the VMAs that I announced the Midnights album. And all I have to say tonight is thank you. I’m blown away. Thank you so much to the fans. I love you so much.”
Swifties await Eras Tour Concert Film – Out on Oct 13
This incredible achievement at 2023 MTV VMA followed Taylor’s historic wins in the previous years. Where she became the first artist to win Video of the Year three times: in 2015 for “Bad Blood,” in 2019 for “You Need to Calm Down,” and in 2018 for All Too Well: The Short Film.
Apart from her VMA success, Taylor is enjoying a quieter period after wrapping up the first leg of her Eras Tour. She’ll soon head to South America for more shows, followed by a packed schedule in Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and the U.K. in 2024.
Before her return to the stage, Taylor has a couple of exciting plans. She’ll release her Eras Tour concert film on October 13, which has already set pre-sale records and caused a few movies to reschedule. Then, on October 27, she’ll drop her fan-favourite re-recorded album, “1989 (Taylor’s Version).”
