Taylor Swift and Morgan Wallen dominated the 2023 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night.

The Shake It Off singer won 10 trophies, including Top Artist, Top Female Artist, Top Hot 100 Songwriter, Top Country Female Artist and Top Selling Song for Anti-Hero.

Meanwhile, country music star Morgan had the biggest night with 11 wins, including Top Male Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Country Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album for One Thing at a Time.

Accepting her wins in a pre-recorded message backstage at her Eras Tour, Taylor said, "Well this is unreal. The fact that you guys have given me 10 Billboard Awards - I'm talking to the fans specifically. None of this happens without you. The Billboards base everything off of what you are listening to and what you're passionate about, and I'm so honoured that this year you made The Eras Tour so magical. You went and saw the movie, you cared about my re-recordings. I just love you so much.

"I feel like the luckiest person in the world to have you in my corner and caring about the music that I make. So thank you - thank you, thank you, thank you 10 million times - for this."

Elsewhere, Drake took home five awards, while Zach Bryan and SZA scooped four each.
