Taylor Swift gushes over Calvin Harris at iHeartRadio Awards

Taylor Swift paid a gushing tribute to boyfriend Calvin Harris at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (03.04.16).

The 26-year-old singer singled out DJ Calvin - whose real name is Adam Wiles - as she was presented with the gong for Best Tour by Justin Timberlake at the Forum in Inglewood.

Taylor said: "For the first time I had the most amazing person to come home to when the spotlight went out and when the crowds were all gone. So I want to thank my boyfriend Adam for that and I love you guys so much."

The 'Bad Blood' hitmaker also picked up the award for Best Album, which was presented by her close pal and Triple Threat winner Selena Gomez, who introduced her as "My Girl T-Swizzy Taylor Swift".

Accepting the award, Taylor paid tribute to her family, saying: "I know my mom, dad and brother are watching and my most vivid memory of growing up is my mom and dad telling me that I was different and unique and special and I could do whatever I wanted in my life.

"So parents tell your kids every day that they are special, they are unique, they could do whatever they want with their lives. Thank you for having me."

She picked up gongs for Female Artist of the Year and was chosen for the new prize of Most Meme-able Moment for the "Crazy Girl with Running Mascara" from her 'Blank Space' music video.

Taylor was also overjoyed when Calvin was awarded the prize for Dance Artist of the Year and gave him a huge hug in front of the crowd.

Other winners included Justin Bieber with three awards and Drake and Twenty One Pilots, who each were awarded two prizes.

And Zayn Malik took to the stage to perform 'Like I Would', after his debut album 'Mind of Mine' topped the Billboard charts.
