List of 2010 Grammy Award Winners

Announcing the 2010 Grammy Award Winners!

And the Queen of the 2010 Grammys is . . . I'm calling it a tie! Everyone was waiting to see Beyonce battle with Taylor Swift for the most awards, and both women walked away winners in their own respect. Beyonce earned six honors, the most ever won by a female performer; Swift not only took home her first Grammy — and three others to go with it — but she also took home the big prize of the night: Best Album. The only time neither lady won? In a surprising upset, Kings of Leon beat them both for Record of the Year for their “Use Somebody.”

This year’s performances seemed even more exciting than in years past, and I’d have a hard time choosing a favorite. As the honorees came back into the press room (more on that later), there was a ton of buzz about Pink's Cirque du Soleil-type ribbon routine, but I also enjoyed Beyonce's cover of “You Oughta Know," and Lady Gaga and Elton John's piano duet in matchy glittered glasses. And of course, the 3-D Michael Jackson tribute brought in artists from every spectrum of music for a standing ovation.

I'm curious to hear your thoughts, but right now, let's go over the winners when you

I thought Norah Jones held the record for most Grammy awards won in one night - seven.

The only thing that still has me scratching my head is Single Ladies not only being nominated for song of the year but winning it. Yeah it's a cool catchy tune but song of the year? NOOOOT!

I was thinking the same thing about new artist...none of them are "new." In regards to Taylor Swift, I'm not a huge fan, but I think there is something to be said for the fact that she writes all her own songs, plays the guitar, and sings. She's got talent, and even if her appeal is primarily to a younger audience, I would say that most artists only appeal to particular audiences.

The thing that always leaves me scratching my head at the Grammys is the "Best <i>New</i> Artist" category. I mean, the Zac Brown Band, MGMT, The Ting Tings? I love all three, but none of them are exactly "new" artists.

taylor swift. yuck. i understand her appeal to the under-16 crowd, but everyone else? does not compute. also, she's not even country anymore at all so her winning country awards is weird.on a more positive note, i'm so glad wolfgang amadeus phoenix, single ladies, lady gaga, kings of leon, and a few others won.

I'm confused by the Taylor Swift big win. I mean, she's cute and all, and her songs are catchy in a very Top 40 sort of way, but why did she win Album of the Year?
