Taylor Swift has said she is “mind blown” as she made Grammy history by becoming the first person to win Album of the Year four times.
The US megastar secured the top gong of the night with her tenth studio album Midnights, having previously won for Fearless in 2009, again six years later for 1989, and most recently for Folklore in 2020.

As she collected the award from Celine Dion, she said: “Oh god, no. I don’t know, man.”
She praised her friend and long-term collaborator Jack Antonoff as a “once in a generation” producer and her fellow nominee Lana Del Rey as a “legacy artist” and a “legend in her prime right now.”
She added: “I would love to tell you that this is the best moment in my life, but I feel this happy when I finish a song or when I crack the code to a bridge that I love or when I’m shot-listing a music video, or when I’m rehearsing with my dancers or my band or getting ready to go to Tokyo to play a show.
“For me, the award is the work. All I want to do is keep being able to do this. I love it so much. It makes me so happy.
“It makes me unbelievably blown away that it makes some people happy who voted for this award too. All I want to do is keep doing this. So, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to do what I love so much – mind blown”.
Earlier in the evening, Swift announced that she would be releasing a new album this April.
