Taylor Swift is least worthy winner of Album of the Year at Grammys [Poll]


As the Grammy Awards are about to hit 55, our forum posters look back at some speed bumps along the way.

Discussing the winners of the top prize — Album of the Year — they often are as outraged by what wasn’t even nominated as they are by what lost. With the Grammy voters often settling for middle-of-the-road music, many worthy contenders were shunted to the shoulders. 

Below, just a sample of our forum posters thoughts on which of these winners was the biggest loser. Join in with your opinion as to who should not have taken home the gold.


It’s so easy to pick the Grammys because music is “subjective” and a lot of crap has been rewarded. Yup, call me elitist, but I’m including the precious Taylor Swift under “crap.”

Here’s a list of sins that have been committed and how they can be absolved.
“Can’t Slow Down” to “Purple Rain” 
“Unplugged” to “Achtung Baby” 
“Falling Into You” to “Odelay” or “Mellen Collie” 
“Two Against Nature to “Kid A” 
“Genius Loves Company” to “American Idiot”
“River: the Joni Letters” to “Back to Black” 
“Fearless” to none (that entire lineup is crap)

The Dixie Chicks in 2007. To me, they had a lot of nerve making fun of the music that they got their start in and if they didn’t like that others in that music had the right to point out that they do not agree with what the group chose to stand for, then the group never should have started in that music, especially if the leader of the group never liked that music in the first place.

Bonnie Raitt‘s “Nick Of Time” should be given to the shockingly not nominated Janet Jackson‘s “Rhythm Nation 1814.”


Celine Dion. Now that was an easy pick, wasn’t it? I mean, the woman beat Beck, Fugees and Smashing Pumpkins. For an album that gave us an eternity suffering through “Because You Loved Me.” So easy to hate that win. I don’t even have to try!

My mind immediately goes to Lauryn Hill beating Madonna.

  1. How can you possibly say that Taylor Swift is least deserving?? Ok so her music isn’t something everyone likes, but does everyone like the same things? Some people must like her music since she had sold just a few albums. (more than 22 million isn’t too

  2. Dammit it didn’t all come out. Well basically you cannot deny everything that she has achieved. Shame on you for letting your big head obscure your vision.

  3. I thought her album was solid. No filler tracks, well produced….. not entirely “serious” music but good none the less. Not sure why it’s such a crime to give this kid credibility.

  4. If your a person who takes artists and their music seriously than you should have nothing but respect for young Taylor Swift. If your a “music journalist” and cant see why she is great get a new job because you are not good at your current one.

  5. Looks like a lot of diaper-pants wearing thuggos with junk jewelry voted here. Taylor is the only true genius to come from the country genre and has trancended it just like the pap-brained yahoos who like wLady GagGag in a meat dress or that dingbat slut

  6. ok if that was such a bad album then why is it the most successful American album in the last 5 years???? PS she was 18 when the album was released and the album was that good.

  7. I would say that calling you elitist would be a compliment, Swifts album , inspite of her critics, is one of the best written collection of songs in many YEARS!

  8. Despite your personal music taste, you can’t deny that Taylor put together one of the most cohesive albums that year. I’m not her biggest fan, but I can also acknowledge that she is beyond her years with her songwriting skills. It’s upsetting that her pop

  9. What? are you kidding me?this artikel is suck.she is a genius who writes beautiful melody.Fearless is a good album.

  10. This is so stupid. I think Fearless is most deserving and I think Speak Now should have been nominated. Taylor writes all her songs and her songs aren’t about drinking or partying they are about how she feels and its relatable to everyone. It has also

  11. She is who she is! I bet you couldn’t write one hit single like her! She’s 22!! And when fearless came out she was only 20!! Give her a break! I’d like to see you try to make an album! I love every single song on that album!

  12. You’re a load if crap yourself. You’re not a song writer so try writing songs that are amazing like Taylor Swift’s. You all are a load of crap and you all are so jealous of the talent, beauty, and success Taylor has!!
