One Direction Beat Taylor Swift for Favorite Pop/Rock Album at 2013 American Music Awards
One Direction won Favorite Pop/Rock Album at the 2013 American Music Awards (Nov. 24). It was their first AMA win ever! Congrats to the boys, especially since they beat out Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake to take home the honor. Later in the broadcast, the boys also nabbed the Favorite Pop/Rock Group, too!
It was actually more interesting that 1D stole the award right out from under T. Swizzle's nose, since she and Harry Styles were hot and heavy as Haylor year ago, sizzling last November and December before fizzling in early January. So most of their fans saw this as a Harry vs. Taylor "thing." Sure, it's a fan fiction drama sort of deal, but still. They are high-profile exes who travel in the same professional circles, such as events like this.
When Louis Tomlinson got to the podium to start the acceptance speech, the audience screams were so loud we could not hear him. While Liam Payne offered the bulk of the speech, we caught maybe two words since the shrieks and the screams were so freakin' loud from the Directioners in the audience.
