Taylor Swift Could Break a Major Record at the 2024 Grammys

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is already a bona fide history-maker, and she doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon.

In fact, the "Bejeweled" singer could once again make history  at the upcoming 2024 Grammy Awards, where she is nominated in six major categories, including Album of the Year for her album Midnights.

If Swift, 34, comes out on top for the most prestigious award of the evening, she will be the first artist in Grammy history to receive the honor four times.

The pop superstar is already the female artist with the most AOTY wins with three under her belt, but that still leaves her tied with Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon and Frank Sinatra. (Swift previously won the title for her albums Fearless in 2010,  1989 in 2016 and folklore in 2021.)

A victory at this year's award show could further solidify Swift's reputation as a dominating force in the industry, and could also be the perfect way to cap off her year of monumental success defined by her record-breaking Eras tour, two chart-topping album releases, and her box office hit, The Eras Tour Film.

But the AOTY award isn't in the bag for Swift yet, as she is still up against some tough competition, including Jon Batiste (World Music Radio), Boygenius (The Record), Miley Cyrus (Endless Summer Vacation), Lana Del Rey (Did You Know That There's a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd), Janelle Monáe (The Age of Pleasure), Olivia Rodrigo (Guts) and SZA (SOS).

A win for SZA or Monáe would also be one for the history books, as either artist could become the first Black woman this century to win Album of the Year. The last woman to do so was Lauryn Hill, who took home the top prize 25 years ago in 1999.

And there's still more records to break, especially for Swift, who could grab her first-ever victory in the Song of the Year category for her popular track "Anti-Hero." With seven nominations, Swift is the most-nominated artist in that category, though she's never won.

There will be plenty of big wins to catch during the 66th Grammy Awards, taking place Sunday, Feb. 4 at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.

The ceremony will broadcast live on CBS at 8 p.m. EST.
