    Congratulations to Taylor Swift! No matter what anyone says, your album was amazing and you truly deserve that award!

    Gale Forcewinds Says:

    But what canTaylor Swift do for a follow-up?

    I liked her songs.
    I likeher.
    She is likeable.

    the pairing of her with Stevie Nicks was not good.
    They sounded horrible. Taylor can’t sing.Stevie has her own unique voice but is not like Celine Dions, somebody like that.

    S3WA Says:

    I’m guessing a lot of the new viewers are fans of Taylor Swift, rarely does a country singer receive notice from fans of other genres. She is loved by many, even those who usually dislike country music. How many 20-yr-olds have achieved what she has in the past year? Amazing feat, so happy for her! Come to think of it, how many singers have achieved what she has regardless of age….

    this girl Says:

    is just amazing, how did she manage to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes. Ot better yet, why is AMerica so stupid? S
    her voice is one of the worst I’ve ever heard, EVER.

    Wow, the show got an increase only to present one of the worst telecasts it has had in recent memory.

    mickey Says:

    @this girl:

    America has nothing to do with it. I’m from the U.S. and I think Taylor Swift’s music is an abomination and I’m not alone.

  21. 21
    mickey Says:


    Well, if you’re Bob Dylan–a great song. If you’re Taylor Swift nothing, absolutely nothing. She can’t sing and she can’t write a good song.

  22. 22
    rhonda Says:

    I’m not a fan of Taylor Swift but she is the one who SOLD records and SOLD OUT the concerts. Its one thing to say your fav is the best but the proof is in the pudding! If the music industry is in deep decline and there is one little girl out there shining, that’s the one who wins.

    I’m not a fan of Taylor Swift or Beyonce, but there is alot to be said for a young girl who writes and performs her own material. There’s alot to be said for a young women who sells out concerts and doesn’t have to dress like ***** and shake her ass in order to sell a record.

    christine (WeHo & NYC) Says:

    LOVE Stevie Nicks.
    And Taylor is ALWAYS just SO pretty… love her face & hair.
    Sorry I cant say the same about Mily Cyrus who I think has great talent, but can be incredibly immature & annoying… she coud learn something about GRACE from Taylor.

  24. 24
    jessica Says:

    congrats to taylor. but i just disagree with 1 thing. i think album of the year should have went to lady gaga instead, but whatever. still congrats though for winning 4 grammys.
