Singer-songwriter Taylor Swift looks back with a tinge of nostalgia at her first Grammy nomination 13 years ago, and she feels "pretty lucky" to still be a part of the night after all these years as a nominee.
Swift — a onetime Grammys darling who hasn't won in five years — bagged a handful of nominations for releasing her surprise quarantine album "Folklore," a commercial and critical hit, and her song "Cardigan" is a contender for the Song Of The Year and Best Pop Solo awards. Swift is also nominated in the category of Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Exile" (featuring Bon Iver), and Best Song Written For Visual Media for "Beautiful Ghosts".
"I feel pretty lucky to still be a part of this night. I think the advice I would give myself when I was younger is probably to, when things get hard, always focus on how much I love music," the 31-year-old singer told Entertainment Tonight.
She opened up on a vital lesson she has learnt along the way in her years as a pop icon.
"People can reduce and criticise other elements. It sounds really, really simple, but loving the actual making of music and the playing of music is what I think has really helped me balance things," she said.
The Grammys were originally supposed to take place on Jan. 31 but were delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Beyoncé earned her 28th Grammy on Sunday, picking up honors like best R&B performance for "Black Parade," best music video for "Brown Skin Girl" as well as best rap performance and best rap song for "Savage," with Megan Thee Stallion.
