Watch out, Grammy: Taylor Swift and Beyonce shatter records
Taylor Swift didn't merely bag the biggest Grammy of all — album of the year for "Fearless" — she became at age 20 the youngest recipient of that prize, eclipsing Alanis Morissette, who was 21 when she triumphed for "Jagged Little Pill" (1996).
Beyonce set a record for most Grammys won by a female in one year (six), but the total is shy of the overall record held by the guys: Michael Jackson (1984) and Carlos Santana (2000), who each nabbed eight.
Beyonce had won five in 2004 and, until now, was tied with five other women for being the biggest champ among females in a single year: Lauryn Hill (1999), Alicia Keys (2002), Norah Jones (2003), Amy Winehouse (2008) and Alison Krauss (2009).
