At the next two Grammy ceremonies, Swift received a total of seven nominations but failed to secure any wins. However, when it came to the 2016 ceremony, Swift came out swinging.

Out of her seven nominations at the award show, Swift won three, including best music video for “Bad Blood,” best pop vocal album for 1989 and album of the year for 1989. With the latter award, Swift made history by becoming the first woman to win the Grammy for album of the year twice for her solo recordings.

As she accepted the honor, Swift gave an impassioned acceptance speech about fame.

“There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame,” Swift said, addressing the young women in the crowd as she accepted the honor. “But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going, you will know it was you and the people who love you who put you there, and that will be the greatest feeling in the world.”

Out of her six nominations at the award show, Swift only took home one, but it was a huge feat. The singer was awarded album of the year for Folklore, marking her third win in the category. Not only did she make history as the first and only woman solo artist to win in the category three times, but she also tied with Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon for the most album of the year wins.

Swift once again gave a heartfelt speech on stage as she accepted the honor, thanking those in her inner circle for inspiring her each step of the way. She also thanked her loyal fans, saying, “You guys met us in this imaginary world that we created, and we can’t tell you how honored we are forever. Thank you so much and thank you to the Recording Academy. We will never forget you did this for us. Thank you so much.”

The latter award was a huge historic moment as it made her the only artist to ever win album of the year four times. “For me, the award is the work,” Swift said on stage. “All I want to do is keep being able to do this. I love it so much. It makes me so happy. It makes me unbelievably blown away that it makes some people happy who voted for this award too. All I want to do is keep doing this. So thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to do what I love so much,” Swift concluded.
