Grammy 2024/Taylor Swift breaks a new record

The 66th Grammy Awards saw female artists dominate the nominations on America's biggest music night on Sunday, with Taylor Swift taking home the night's most coveted prize: album of the year for "Midnights."

"I wish I could tell you that this is the best moment of my life, but I feel so happy (even) when I finish a song, or when I find the code for a bridge that I love, or when I preset a music video, or when work with my dancers," Swift said while collecting the album of the year Grammy for "Midnights."

"For me, the award is the work," she added. She now has four Grammy Awards for album of the year, more than any other artist in Grammy history.

Swift won the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album during the gala and announced a new album, The Tortured Poets Department, which caused an internet sensation.

Miley Cyrus wins Grammy Award for the first time

Miley Cyrus won her first Grammy for Best Pop Solo Performance for "Flowers" and Best Album of the Year, also for the song. She had been nominated eight times before, but had never won until today. SZA won best R&B song for "Snooze," taking home her third Grammy of the night.

Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas O'Connell won the Grammy for best song for "What Was I Made For," from the "Barbie" soundtrack.

Victoria Monét was crowned the best young artist: "I just want to say to everyone who has a dream: I want you to see this as an example."

SZA and 'Barbie' led the nominations

SZA was the top nominee, with nine nominations for her album, "SOS," which topped the Billboard 200 for 10 consecutive weeks.

"Kill Bill," the revenge anthem disguised as an R&B ballad, earned him nominations for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best R&B Performance. "Barbie" also dominated the Grammys. The soundtrack of the hit movie won 11 nominations.

Singer Dua Lipa was up for two awards for her song "Dance the Night."

First prize winners before the premiere ceremony

Apart from a few major awards, such as album of the year or song of the year, most winners were announced and awarded during a special presentation, called the premiere ceremony, which took place before the prime-time televised event.

The supergroup consisting of Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker took home three major trophies at the premiere ceremony. They won for Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song and Best Alternative Album for "The Record". "Barbie" songs took home two awards and SZA also won two.

The Grammy for Best African Music Performance was one of three new additions to this year's awards show and aims to highlight regional musical traditions from across the African continent.

South African singer Tyla won the award for "Water". The 22-year-old said in her acceptance speech that: "If you don't know me, my name is Tyla and I'm from South Africa. And last year, God decided to change my life."/ DW
