Grammy Night’s Big Winners

Taylor Swift took home two trophies last night and an amazing “in your face” performance of her single “Mean”. Her song was unquestionably a crowd pleaser that ended with a full standing ovation.  While most of us knew Taylor would rack in the trophies (just as the rock world new Adele would) Taylor looked genuinely shocked at both the standing ovation by her peers and the titles “Solo Performance” and “Best Song”.

Before the show, Taylor was interviewed by Ryan Seacrest who asked questions like ” How do you prepare for the future and stay on pace when your fame is so big” , “Are you afraid of things falling apart because you rose to fame so quickly?” Taylor responded by saying shes neurotic about her work and planning for the future and she hopes she can evolve with her fans and continue doing what she love best.

Catch Taylor Swift tonight on Mtv at 7:54 for the world premier of her new song from The Hunger Games movie. If you miss it, it re-airs on CMT.

The Civil Wars will also appear on the soundtrack from The Hunger Games  performing with Taylor Swift. Haven’t heard of The Civil Wars? Their fame is rising just as quickly as The Band Perry. Last night the Civil wars won 2 Grammys, one for “Best Folk Album” and one for “Best Duo/Group”, locking out Country music ‘Greats’ like Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, and the new duo Thompson Square. The Civil Wars are currently touring the UK, but check out future tour dates @ Click here to hear the Grammy Award winning song “Barton Hollow” .

Other big winners last night include Alison Krauss and Union Station (for Bluegrass Categories) and Lady Antebellum. Lady Antebellum was awarded for “Best Album of the Year” and attributed much of their success to their cross-over type image.
