NEW YORK – It could be a night for the history books for Taylor Swift and Beyoncé at Sunday’s Grammy Awards — for both good and bad reasons.
Swift could become the first woman to win the show’s top prize, album of the year, three times. Her first surprise album of 2020 — the folky, alternative adventure “folklore” — is competing for the top honor, an award she first won in 2010 for “Fearless,” her breakthrough that helped established her as a bona fide pop star even though she sang country music.
She won again in 2016 for “1989,” her first full-length pop album that dominated the charts with a bounty of hits. Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra and Paul Simon are some of the male performers who have won album of the year three times.
