Taylor Swift will add yet another gong to her trophy collection when she’s feted with the Artist of the Decade honor at the American Music Awards next month.

The You Need to Calm Down singer will collect the accolade during the Los Angeles ceremony, at which she is also set to perform. Swift, who currently holds the record for the most AMA wins of any female artist, is up for five trophies.

“Taylor’s impact on music this decade is undeniable and her performances on the American Music Awards have been truly spectacular,” Mark Bracco, executive vice president of programming and development at Dick Clark Productions, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to honor her as our Artist of the Decade and can’t wait for her to blow everyone away with an epic, career-spanning performance unlike any other!”

The 2019 American Music Awards will be held on 24 November.
