But on Sunday, the "Fearless" singer made no mention of the dispute, although she opened her performance wearing a white shirt printed with the titles of her old albums.
'I can't believe that it's Carole King, that it's you who gave me this award, ' she said. She also broke Michael Jackson's record for most Artist of the Year wins - 2019's AMAs marked her fifth win in the category.
She then performed a section of her new track, 'The Man, ' a song about how more successful and lesser criticised she would have been if she had been born a man.
Taylor Swift's button-down shirt with her album names printed on it. The talk show host, 55, threw shade at the Grammy-winning artist, 29, while discussing her Artist of the Decade award she was honored with at the annual show, along with five other awards.
Swift didn't legitimately reference her debate with Braun on Sunday night, yet she said that "this industry is extremely strange" before expressing gratitude toward her fans, including: "This year for me has been a great deal". "And all that matters to me is the memories I've had over the years with you, the fans, because we've had some amusing, unbelievably exciting times together, thank you for being the reason why I'm on this I'm on stage. It's so thrilling to me that I get to keep doing that".
It was a family affair at the AMAs: Swift's father and teary-eyed mom sang along as the singer performed a medley of her hit songs - a performance Swift said in a November 15 social media post was put in jeopardy by Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun, the owners of her master recordings.
Country music star Thomas Rhett and celebrity couple Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes were also among the performers.
The American Music Awards (AMAs), held last night, honoured legendary musical feats.
Swift has channeled her anguish over her mom's situation into her art, as her song Soon You'll Get Better is about the family health battle. She said that she faced the hardest things in her life this year, as well as "some of the most fantastic times".
