Taylor Swift wins 13th Grammy for pop vocal album ‘Midnights’

It’s her, hi! Taylor Swift, the winner of 13 Grammys and the internet breaker after announcing brand-new album, “Tortured Poets Department.”

Swift won best pop vocal album for “Midnights.” This is Swift’s second win in the category; she was nominated once before for “1989.”

Swift has been nominated 52 times over her career, adding six this year:

“Anti-Hero,” pop solo performance, Taylor Swift
“Karma,” pop duo/group performance, Taylor Swift featuring Ice Spice
“Anti-Hero,” song of the year, Jack Antonoff and Taylor Swift
“Anti-Hero,” record of the year, Taylor Swift
“Midnights,” pop vocal album, Taylor Swift
“Midnights,” album of the year, Taylor Swift

Swift didn’t win song of the year, Billie Eilish won for her Barbie ballad, “What was I made for?” She also didn’t win best pop solo performance. The award went to Miley Cyrus’s “Flowers” and was her very first Grammy.

Before the primetime show, Swift and Ice Spice’s pop duo/group performance nomination did not win. “Karma” lost out to Phoebe Bridgers and SZA’s “Ghost In The Machine.” The win was Bridgers first Grammy.

Taylor Swift1… 2… 3… album of the year wins

Swift’s first through fourth Grammys came in 2010 for her work on her sophomore album, “Fearless,” including the coveted album of the year award. It’s an award she’s won thrice and could make history for winning four times.

“This is the story, all of us,” Swift said in her acceptance speech, “when we are 80 years old and we are telling the same stories over and over again to our grandkids and they’re so annoyed with us. This is the story we’re going to be telling over and over again. In 2010, that we got to win album of the year at the Grammys.”

“White Horse.”

“We went to the off-camera area which is where they give country song of the year,” Rose said. “It was so cool because Taylor was so gracious and she said, ‘If we win, I want you to talk.’ And these were her first Grammys, too.”

In 2016, Swift’s fifth album,”1989,” took the top honor.

“I want to say to all the young women out there,” Swift said in her acceptance speech, “there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going, you will look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there.”

In 2021, her eighth album “Folklore” beat seven other artists including Dua Lipa, Post Malone and Coldplay. “Mostly, we just want to thank the fans,” she said in her acceptance speech. “You guys met us in this imaginary world that we created and we can’t tell you how honored we are forever by this.”

Swift’s friend and co-producer Aaron Dessner said in his speech, “It’s hard to believe I’m standing up here with one of the greatest living songwriters who somehow put trust in me to collaborate in this crazy time we all lived through.”
