Taylor Swift Wins Album Of The Year, Kind Of Sucked Live

January 31st, 2010 // 5 Comments

Taylor Swift walked away with five Grammys, including the award for Best Album. She’s the youngest artist ever to win the award, however her extremely off-key performance on the award show had many wondering if she should have won.

“I just hope that you know how much this means to me … that we get to take this back to Nashville,” said Swift, whose second album Fearless was the biggest-selling release in the United States last year.

Beyonce took home the most trophies, six in all, the most ever for a female artist in one night.

The surprise winners of the night were the Kings of Leon who won Record of the Year for “Use Somebody.”

It was the performances by Pink, Lady Gaga and Beyonce that made the show stand out this year. They all sizzled.

    Taylor Swift did not deserve a single Grammy and her off key performance proves it. She is a no talent hack. She SUCKS.

  2. Megan L

    I totally agree… I hope that people now see how Taylor Swift is actually auto-tuned and can’t sing worth shit!

    Carrie Underwood or Miranda Lambert should’ve won Female Country Performance with VOCALS!!

  3. Levinson Axelrod

    This performance was less than amazing.

  4. Amelie Tess

    Wow, I can’t believe there are people who agree with me on the ridiculous taylor swift craze(i like the readers on this site, should bookmark it). she cant sing, dance, her lyrics are crap, and so is her music. hell, she can’t even entertain on stage. i still dont “get” how she’s supposedly so big right now. i guess standards are lower than the dumps.

  5. Mick Russom

    Worst trash I have ever heard of watched. I wont be watching the grammys again. This stuff is pure trash, and the music industry is just that, a frigging industry, and its no longer a meritocracy. It sucks.
