Taylor Swift Is Surrounded by Girlfriends on Her Big AMAs Night

Taylor Swift opened the American Music Awards in LA on Sunday night with her hit song "Blank Space."

Taylor also nabbed a huge honor at the AMAs this year by taking home the Dick Clark Award For Excellence for her achievements over the years — including her 16 AMA titles. She had plenty of girlfriends, including Karlie Kloss, Lorde, and Selena Gomez, in the audience for support on her big night.
