"Ahh, this is album of the year," Swift gushed at the podium. "Oh wow! Thank you so much. I just hope that you know how much this means to me – that we get to take this back to Nashville."
"This is for my dad," she continued. "Thank you for all those times you said I could do whatever I wanted in life. And to my mom, you're my best friend."
Though Swift beat out Beyoncé in the album category, Mrs. Jay-Z's night was hardly shabby and she walked away as the evening's biggest winner -- taking home six of the ten awards she was nominated for, including song of the year for "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" and best female pop vocal performance for "Halo."
Other big winners included rockers Kings of Leon, whose "Use Somebody" earned the Grammy for record for the year, while Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas won three awards, including best pop vocal album for The E.N.D. The country group Zac Brown Band took home the best new artist award.
