Feb 5 2024 Share

Taylor Swift has made history at the Grammy Awards by becoming the only artist to win ‘Album of the Year’ four times.

This achievement surpasses the records held by renowned artists such as Taylor herself, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, and Frank Sinatra, who each won the award three times. Swift’s fourth win marks a significant milestone in Grammy history and highlights her consistent ability to connect with audiences through her music.

‘Midnights’ is Taylor Swift’s tenth studio album and features songs such as ‘Lavender Haze’ and ‘Anti-Hero’. During the acceptance speech, the beloved artist revealed the title of her next album ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ which will come out on April 19th, 2024.

This record-setting win does not only show Swift’s absolute chokehold on the international music scene but also places her in a unique position in the industry, showcasing her as a significant and influential figure.

During the night, Miley Cyrus also won her first Grammy for Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance with “Flowers” while Billie Eilish secured Best Song Written for Visual Media with Barbie’s “What Was I Made For?”

SZA, with nine nominations, won three awards and delivered an emotional speech during the ceremony. Best New Artist was awarded to Victoria Monét, who also won Best R&B Album.

One of the beloved episodes of “SpongeBob SquarePants,” titled “Band Geeks,” is set to come to life during Nickolodeon’s first-ever Super Bowl broadcast. CBS revealed that SpongeBob and the Bikini Bottom band will open the broadcast with a performance of “Sweet Victory.”

However, the rendition will differ from the original 2001 animation, as the sequence will be reanimated in CGI, showcasing an uncanny-valley look for the characters.

Despite the slightly unnerving new design, the iconic song is expected to captivate audiences, marking a unique start to a real Super Bowl broadcast.

Nick’s kid-friendly Super Bowl broadcast will feature several of the network’s well-known characters hosting a version of the game.

While this will be SpongeBob’s first performance during the Super Bowl, it’s not the first time the fan-favorite episode has been referenced. In 2019, Squidward introduced the halftime show in a brief clip.

Fans had long hoped for “Sweet Victory” to receive a Super Bowl spotlight, leading to a Change.org petition in 2018, which garnered over 1.2 million signatures and eventually resulted in Squidward’s appearance at the Super Bowl a few months later.
