It's my pleasure to present the American music award for artist of the decade to Taylor Swift!
You guys, first of all, I want to say that getting to share the stage with Misty Copeland, and Craig Hall, and Camila Cabello, and Halsey, and all those amazing dancers was in so many ways a dream come true.
So I just, that performance was even more fun than I hoped it would be.
Oh, my god.
I can't believe that it's Carole King, it's you who gave me this award.
So, you know, my parents are here tonight.
And, you know, they would listen to "tapestry" and all your records in high school, then they took them with them and packed them up to college with them.
When they met and got their own house, they took those records with them there, and when they had, my brother and I, they played those record for us.
When I fell in love with music, it was right around the time i realized how marvelous it was that an artist could transcend so many different changes and phases in lives.
So, you taught me that that was a possibility.
