Did Taylor Swift Enjoy the Grammys More Than Anyone?

Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake & More Grammy Performances Inspire Grammy Buzz

Originally posted 02/11/2013 10:50AM

The Grammys are called music's biggest night for a reason.

With performances from Justin Timberlake, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Jack White, Frank Ocean, Miranda Lambert and more, the audience rocked their way through the 3.5 hour broadcast.

But no one was having more fun than Swift, 23, who was seen singing along and dancing to almost every song played throughout the night. But the singer-songwriter had plenty of reason to celebrate – earlier that day, she learned she won a Grammy for her song with The Civil Wars, "Safe & Sound," which appeared on The Hunger Games soundtrack.

Grammys 2013: Who Put on the Best Show of the Night?

Originally posted 02/11/2013 01:15AM

It's the only awards show that's as much a concert as it is a parade of stars. So, who brought the goods Sunday night at the Grammys?

There were plenty of memorable moments, both solo performances and the duets and collaborations for which the Grammys are so famous.

Justin Timberlake made his much-anticipated – and, it turned out, sepia-toned – return to the Grammys, with help from Jay-Z, singing "Suit & Tie" and "Pusher Love Girl." That came soon after Taylor Swift opened the show with a flamboyant Alice in Wonderland take on her hit "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together."

Grammy Nominations: Why Adele Only Got Six, Other Shockers Explained

Originally posted 12/01/2011 08:45AM

You might be excused for doing a double take when seeing that Adele does not lead the nominations for the 54th annual Grammy Awards, announced Wednesday night.

How the heck could that be after the phenomenal year that she's had with 21 – easily the biggest-selling album of 2011 as well as one of the most critically acclaimed?

Well, truth is, Adele is nominated in pretty much every single category she was eligible for. (Next time do a song with Jay-Z and you can be nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration!)

That leaves her with six nominations, including album, record and song of the year (the latter two for "Rolling in the Deep"). But that's four less than Beyoncé Knowles scored two years ago.

Adele, Kanye West & Bruno Mars Lead Grammy Nominations

Originally posted 11/30/2011 11:20PM

It's the perfect pick-me-up as she recovers from throat surgery.

Adele, the Brit with the powerhouse voice, earned six Grammy Award nominations Wednesday night, including nods in all three of the award show's major categories: album of the year; record of the year; and song of the year.

Kanye West, however, snagged the most recognition, leading with seven nominations, many for his collaboration with Jay-Z, Watch the Throne.

This year, like last, the Grammys spread the wealth across genres, with rockers Foo Fighters and R&B crooner Bruno Mars each picking up six nominations. Not far behind: rapper Lil Wayne and electronic dance jam pioneer Skrillex, who both pulled in five nominations, while indie rocker Bon Iver, Nicki Minaj, Mumford & Sons and Rihanna each earned four nominations.
