Grammys 2024 – Taylor Swift makes history with best album award

Taylor Swift stole the show at this year’s Grammy Awards, becoming the first artist to win album of the year four times.

The superstar had previously been tied for three best album awards with Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon and Frank Sinatra.

She received the award from Celine Dion, who made an unexpected appearance. Swift also used the event to reveal a surprise new album.

Miley Cyrus and Billie Eilish took home the other top awards at Sunday’s ceremony.


Dion got a rapturous reception when she appeared to present the trophy for best album, nearly a year after she was forced to cancel all of her live shows after being diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder.

“When I say I’m happy to be here, I say it from the heart,” she told the audience.

There was an equally enthusiastic response when Dion announced Swift’s name.

The historic achievement is now one of many the star has achieved in recent years. She said that “I would love to tell you that this is the best time of my life,” but that simply finishing a song, rehearsing or preparing to play a show makes her equally happy.

“For me, the prize is the work,” she said. “All I want to do is continue to be able to do this. I love it so much. It makes me very happy. I’m incredibly impressed that it makes some people who also voted for this award happy.”

Eilish’s contribution to the Barbie movie soundtrack, What Was I Made For?, won song of the year, beating Swift’s Anti-Hero, as well as songs by SZA, Cyrus and Olivia Rodrigo.

“Damn, they’re stupid,” she remarked to the crowd as she accepted the award with her brother and co-writer Finneas.

“Everyone in this category… it was a crazy list of amazing people, amazing artists, amazing music. I feel crazy right now.”

The song also won the award for best song written for visual media, while the Barbie album, which was put together by producer Mark Ronson, took home the award for best compilation soundtrack for visual media.
