“Mostly, we just want to thank the fans,” she continued. “You met us in this fantasy world we created, and we can’t tell you how much it honors us forever. Thank you so much, and thank you to the Recording Academy. We’ll never forget you did this for us. Thank you very much.”

Taylor Swift is (yet again) nominated for Album of the Year at the 2022 Grammy Awards
Just months after the release of Folklore, Swift debuted the full-length “sister” album titled Always. With the songs “Willow”, “Champagne Problems” and “Gold Rush”, Swift explored music from a folk perspective. She featured HAIM on “No Body, No Crime” and Bon Iver on “Evermore.”
The Grammy Awards have announced that Swift is nominated for Album of the Year for Always. Other nominees in this category include Billie Eilish (happier than ever), Olivia Rodrigo (Acid), and Lil Nas X (Montero).
Swift took to the stage at the 2021 Grammys to perform Folklore songs with Jack Antonoff of the Bleachers and Aaron Dessner of the National. However, it’s unclear if she will perform at the 2022 ceremony, as BTS, Rodrigo, Lil Nas X, and Eilish have already been confirmed as performers at the upcoming music event.
The 2022 Grammy Awards take place on April 3. Until then, Swift’s previously released music is available on most major streaming platforms.
