Taylor Swift won everything short of the Powerball jackpot Sunday night (May 19) at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards. The country superstar collected eight awards, including Top Artist, Top Album and Top Country Artist at the Las Vegas ceremony.

Accepting the Top Artist Award from Celine Dion, Swift thanked her family and then her fans. “I just want to thank you guys for making my music the soundtrack to your crazy emotions,” she said before adding, “You are the longest and best relationship I have ever had.”

Swift won six awards during the pre-show broadcast, including Top Female Artist, Billboard 200 Artist, Top Digital Songs Artist, Top Country Artist, Top Country Song for ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ and Top Country Album for ‘Red.’

Overall she was nominated for 11 2013 Billboard Music Awards, but lost Top 100 Artist, Top Social Artist and Top Streaming Song Awards.

Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan were among the other country stars with multiple nominations, but no other country artist but Swift was a winner. Aldean was up against several pop and rock artists for the Top Male Artist Award, but lost to Justin Bieber.
