Taylor Swift had a triumphant night at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards.

The night also belonged to Shakira, as the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer became the first South American artist honored with the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

Going into last night’s ceremony with the most nominations, Swift took home nine awards during the ceremony hosted by Nicki Minaj at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The sweep means Swift is now the record-holder for most VMA wins in one night.

The pop superstar’s lifetime tally now sits at 23, making her the second-most decorated artist in the award show’s history after Beyoncé.

The 33-year-old musician also became the first artist to win Video of the Year four times, as she collected the prize for “Anti-Hero”.

The glitzy award show was attended by stars such as rock singer Jared Leto, Tiffany Haddish, rapper Cardi B and her husband Offset, Colombian singer Karol G, Saweetie and pop star Demi Lovato, with performances from “Bongos” collaborators Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, “Vampire” hitmaker Olivia Rodrigo, Best Latin award winner Anitta, Lil Wayne, P Diddy, and Doja Cat – among scores others.
