Swift, 19, won four awards, including album of the year (“Fearless”), female vocalist of the year, music video of the year (“Love Story”), and entertainer of the year.  She is reportedly the youngest artist to ever win the prestigious entertainer of the year award. 

The joke of the evening also included several references to Kanye West’s interruptance of Swift’s speech at the MTV Video Music Awards in September, which Swift also poked fun of when she hosted “Saturday Night Live” last weekend.

The show, which aired on ABC, was hosted by artists Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley.  Performers included Swift, Underwood, Paisley, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Daughtry and Vince Gill.
