While rattling off a few of Swift’s biggest accomplishments to date (she’s brought home 250 awards and five Guinness World Records), JT joked that, “Word on the street is she’s in the pole vault at the Olympics in Rio and she’s favored to win.”
A montage of Swift’s biggest trek, which brought 2 million of her “fans and friends,” the pop queen also brought out a total of 48 artists, including Mick Jagger, Timberlake himself, Lorde, Fetty Wap and others.
JT even hyped up Swift’s accolades by throwing subtle shade at presidential candidate Donald Trump. “Some people are trying to build walls — not naming any names,” he said before exclaiming, “That was a political joke!”
Clad in a black sequined, Catwoman-esque jumper, Swift returned to the stage to accept the trophy. “I think my favorite part was the camaraderie of all the artists,” she said in her acceptance speech. “I’m so thankful to everyone who donated their time to surprise my crowds.”

She saved the most awww-worthy moment for the end, thanking her boyfriend Calvin Harris. “I had the most amazing person to come home to when the spotlight went out and the crowds were all gone, so I want to thank my boyfriend Adam,” she said, citing Harris’ real name, Adam Wiles.
