The biggest music event of the year is being held for the 66th time. The 2024 Grammy Awards will be held at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles at 2 a.m. on Monday, Norwegian time.
Expectations for the 66th Grammy Awards are many, but almost all of them revolve around 34-year-old Taylor Swift, who is already a heavyweight in the music industry. However, this year's awards show might be extra special for the “Anti-Hero” singer.
Anti-log can be eliminated
This year, Taylor Swift could make history. If she wins in the “Album of the Year” category, with the album “Midnights” (2022), she will become the first artist, regardless of her gender, to win four awards in the album category. In this case, it will be her fourth win in a row, after receiving Grammy Awards for “Fearless” (2021), “1989” (2023), and “Folklore” (2020).
If she wins her fourth Album of the Year win, she will beat out legends like Stevie Wonder and Frank Sinatra, who each took home three album awards.
Swift has already broken the record for the most nominations in the “Song of the Year” category, with her seventh nomination for her hit “Anti-Hero.” However, she has never won, meaning she currently holds the record for the most nominated female artist who has never won in this category.
We have already started celebrating: – We won
However, fans have already started celebrating after it emerged that Lana Del Rey and Taylor Swift will be sitting next to each other during this year's awards show. Lana Del Ray appears on Swift's album in the song “Snow on the Beach.”
– Two of the best and most influential artists of their generation next to each other! We won! writes one fan on X.
Regarding expectations for Swift's potential record-breaking night, many have also expressed frustration that the singer's current boyfriend, football player Travis Kelce, will not be able to share the event with her due to the buildup to the Super Bowl.
– This is a tragedy, writes one fan on X.
– We lost, write several.
But others celebrate the collaboration between artists for its own sake.

After her huge success “Barbie”, she was also nominated this year in the “Song of the Year” category for the film’s theme song. The singer has already won Best Original Song at this year's Golden Globe Awards for “What Are You Made For?”, with his brother Finneas O'Connell.
If she also wins the Grammys, she will become the only artist to take home three song awards, beating out artists like Adele, Norah Jones and Roberta Flack, and mentions like Paul Simon and Bruno Mars.
