Taylor Swift gave an extra special shout-out to boyfriend Calvin Harris when she accepted the award for best tour at the 2016 iHeartMusic Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.

“For the first time I had the most amazing person to come home to when the crowds were all gone and the spotlight went out so I’d like to thank my boyfriend Adam for that,” the 26-year-old singer said, referring to Harris by his real name, Adam Richard Wiles.


Swift, who earned the award for her extremely successful 1989 world tour, was introduced by none other than Justin Timberlake, who also made a cameo during one of her shows in Los Angeles.

“Some people are out here to build walls – I ain’t naming no names,” Timberlake joked during his introduction. “That was a political joke, shut up you can’t even joke – I’m kidding. Taylor invites us to knock down walls and be on her #squad.”

Timberlake also read out impressive stats on Swift, noting that she had won 250 awards to date (“I mean I don’t know how that’s mathematically possible”) and holding five records in the Guinness Book of World Records.

“Rumor has it she’s in the pole vault in the upcoming Olympics in Rio and she’s the favorite to win,” Timberlake joked.


Swift won the award for best tour after she had already nabbed the trophy for female artist of the year – where she was pitted against bestie Selena Gomez, Adele and others.
