Taylor Swift became the first woman to win Album Of The Year twice at The Grammys, thanks to her album 1989 taking out the top prize at this year's ceremony. During her acceptance speech, Taylor alluded to the recent controversy with Kanye West, saying, "As the first woman to win album of the year twice, I want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or you fame. But if you just focus on the work, and you don't let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you are going, you will look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you that put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world." The blonde pop star also took home the prize for Best Video for Bad Blood. The Weeknd, Ed Sheeran and Kendrick Lamar were the night's other big winners taking home several awards each.
