Grammy Winners List: Taylor Swift Makes History With ‘Midnights’ Album of the Year Win

Taylor Swift followed a banner 2023 by making Grammys history — with her Album of the Year win for “Midnights,” she became the first artist in history to win Album of the Year four times. She previously won the category for “Fearless,” “1989” and “folklore.”

Swift, of course, is coming off an incredible year in which her Eras Tour sold out arenas and boosted local economies all over the country, bonus tracks from her re-released version of “1989” dominated airwaves, she stormed movie theaters with her “Eras Tour” concert film that she distributed alongside AMC Theaters and she’s been all over the NFL supporting boyfriend Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs.

An Album of the Year Grammy win felt like the all-too-fitting cherry on top, and she’s not slowing down — she announced in one of her acceptance speeches that her next all-new album arrives in April.

But while Swift won the top category, the Grammys spread the love this year.

Billie Eilish and Finneas won the coveted Song of the Year prize for “What Was I Made For?” from the “Barbie” soundtrack, which honors the best in songwriting. Miley Cyrus took Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for “Flowers,” her first two Grammys ever.

Taylor Swift’s “Midnights” also won Best Pop Vocal Album and SZA won Best R&B Song.

Supergroup boygenius won Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song for “Cool About It” and Best Alternative Album, while Paramore took Best Rock Album for “This Is Why” — the first female-fronted band in history to win that category.

The “Barbie” soundtrack also scored awards for Best Song Written for Visual Media for Billie Eilish and Finneas’ “What Was I Made For?” and Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media. And Ludwig Goransson’s score for Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer” won Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media.
