Taylor Swift, Phoenix, Steve Earle Honored at 2010 Grammy Awards


At last night’s Grammy awards, female pop stars reigned. Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga together took six awards, and the Recording Academy liked Beyoncé so much they might as well have put a ring on it.

Lady Beyonswift did leave a few statuettes laying around for the rest of the recording community, though, including several Paste favorites. Phoenix snagged Best Alternative Music Album for their breakthrough Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, Bruce Springsteen took Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance, Kanye West won for for “Run this Town” with Jay-Z and Rihanna, and Steve Earle took home a trophy for Best Contemporary Folk Album. Elsewhere, Best Hard Rock Performance and Best Instrumental Performance and Album went to our predictions for the categories.
