Taylor Swift's night at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas was a success.
She led all artists at the Sunday-night ceremony with eight wins, including top artist and top Billboard 200 album, for Red.
While accepting the top artist prize, she told her fans, "You are the longest and best relationship I ever had."
Taylor also delivered one of the more memorable performances of the night, singing her hit "22" in an elaborate production that began backstage and featured several dancers, a bicycle ride and plenty of red balloons.
Rihanna and Gotye each received four awards. Several artists, including Justin Bieber, picked up three. While on stage, Justin declared, "This is not a gimmick. I'm an artist and I should be taken seriously."
