By: KAYLA McDONALD

Sunday night’s 63rd Annual Grammys celebrated music from all genres ranging from “Body Count” winning Best Rock Song to Taylor Swift breaking the record of becoming the first female to win the top Grammy three times. Swift, who now sits with 11 Grammys, took to social media to show her excitement and appreciation to her fans with a tweet saying “The fans are the reason we are floating tonight, and we’ll never forget it.” 

Swift has released 2 albums, and 2 album variations in the past 7 months, with her 8th studio album “Folklore” sitting at the Billboard #1 spot for 8 consecutive weeks. All of which were taken into an appreciation of her fans during her performance at the Grammys. Kayden McDonald who is a loyal fan of Swift says “[she] gave a unique performance, we got to see visuals of her album and really see it come to life” 

Swift gave a 3 song performance, with songs off her two pandemic-released albums, “Folklore” and “Evermore” in a cottage-core-themed set. The stage was set with fake grass, trees, and twinkling lights to set the ambiance of her performance of songs Cardigan, August, and Willow. 

During her acceptance speech for “Best Album” Taylor remained in a state of awe thanking her fans for helping her achieve her record-breaking win. Swift was also congratulated by friend, Harry Styles, who had won his first Grammy earlier in the night for “Best Pop Solo Performance” The two (who have previously dated) were cordial and only shared best wishes for each other in a conversation that was seen between them after the award show. 

With Swift’s 6 Grammy nominations this year it is evident that her hard work and dedication for music is being appreciated and recognized.
