Taylor Swift was the big winner at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards in the US today, taking home six new surfboard trophies, including the show’s biggest honour - the Ultimate Choice Award.
Taylor’s six wins bring her total career Teen Choice wins to 13 (Taylor’s lucky number), making her the most-honoured winner in the history of the Teen Choice Awards. Taylor, whose Ultimate Choice award presentation included an introduction by her friend Emma Stone and a touching video tribute, received the coveted award in recognition of her extraordinary contributions to the music and entertainment industry.
The discretionary award is not handed out every year, and past honorees include Justin Timberlake, Adam Sandler, Mike Myers, and Reese Witherspoon. Taylor also won surfboards last night for Choice Female Artist, Choice Red Carpet Fashion Icon, Choice Breakup Song (for 'Back To December'), Choice Country Artist, and Choice Country Single (for 'Mean').
Taylor flew overnight to Los Angeles from Philadelphia to attend the awards, after making the fifth stadium stop on the US portion of her Speak Now World Tour.
Taylor’s brand new single 'Sparks Fly' from her album Speak Now is released on Monday 15th August.
