Taylor Swift led the winners at the Billboard Music Awards last night, taking home eight prizes.
The "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" hitmaker - who is known for her turbulent love life and relationships with stars including Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal and John Mayer - paid tribute to her loyal fans as she picked up the evening's top honor, the coveted Artist of the Year prize.
"Thank you for making my music the soundtrack to your crazy emotions. You are the longest and best relationship I've had," she said.
As well as Artist of the Year, Taylor also took home honors including Top Female Artist, Top Country Artist, Billboard 200 Album and Top Country Album for Red, and Top Country Song for "We Are Never Getting Back Together."
Jennifer Lopez and estranged husband Marc Anthony reunited on stage over the weekend.
The American Idol judge and the Latino singer - who announced their seven-year marriage was over last July - held hands as they appeared during the finale of the Q'Viva! The Chosen Live show at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Events Center on Saturday.
The event was the live ending for their TV talent program and the former couple - who have four-year-old twins, Max and Emme, together - watched the talented finalists perform.
Despite their split, Jennifer and Marc looked close throughout the night and at one point they embraced each other on stage, much to the delight of the crowd. Jennifer - who is now dating backing dancer Casper Smart - and Marc have always vowed to make their split as amicable as possible for the sake of Max and Emme.

Jennifer Lopez’s fall at last month’s American Music Awards left her with an injured derriere.
“I have a bruised bone. What happened was one of the dancers’ backs was slippery from sweat and lights and everything. We never bargained for that because they always had T-shirts on in rehearsal,” Lopez explained. “So they were bare-backed, didn’t have shirts on for the performance, and when I stepped on their backs my feet got wet. So when I landed, it just slipped from under me.”
She may have mastered walking in high heels, but even Jennifer Lopez can stumble while wearing rubber soles.

In the number choreographed by So You Think You Can Dance‘s Tabitha and Napoleon D’umo, Jennifer taps into moves from her Fly Girl days while pretending to sing live at the same time.
