Twenty-year-old songbird Taylor Swift may have taken home four trophies at last weekend’s 52nd Grammy Awards, but the starlet’s less than impressive Grammy Night duet with rock legend Stevie Nicks has been the subject of many a biting remark on the blogosphere.
The New York Times called Swift “painfully out of tune” and The San Diego Union-Tribune quipped that “her karaoke-level singing made a good argument in favor of using Auto-Tune.”
Now the head of Taylor’s label is coming to Blondie’s rescue.
Country starlet Taylor Swift had a tough time handling all the awards she won at Sunday night’s 2010 Grammys! The “You Belong With Me” songstress dropped one of her coveted prizes as she entered the press room after last night’s ceremony in Los Angeles. Where’s Kanye to grab one when you need him? The statuette hit the floor with a thud and broke as photographers continued snapping away. The broken Grammy was promptly replaced with a prop for the photo-op, but no word on whether or not Taylor will be issued a permanent replacement.
Swift won the Album Of The Year award for her platinum-selling disc Fearless, Best Female Country Vocal Performance for “White Horse,” Best Country Song for “Fearless,” and Best Country Album for Fearless.
Sunday night’s 52nd Annual Grammy Awards drew a huge audience for CBS, early viewing figures show.
According to Nielsen projections, an audience of approximately 25.8 million viewers tuned in for the biggest night in American music — which featured a performance by Lady Gaga and Elton John and a historic six wins by nominee frontrunner Beyonce. In fact, this weekend’s live broadcast from the Staples Center Los Angeles attracted the largest Grammy audience since 2004.
