Swift gave an acceptance speech where she said, “This is unbelievable. The fact that this is a fan-voted award means so much to me. 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. All I have to say tonight is thank you.”
