Taylor Swift's Grammys nominations night included four nominations, plus a performance of her hit single, "I Knew You Were Trouble."
Swift appeared on "The GRAMMY Nominations Live!" televised concert special, though her performance was pre-taped. (At last year's Grammys nominations concert, Swift beatboxed.)
Swift, whom New York Magazine recently crowned as the biggest pop star in the world, was nominated for Album of the Year for "Red." The record also received a nod for Best Country Album.
Swift's smash hit album was released in 2012, but after the deadline for 2013 Grammys consideration. As such, only the record's lead single, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," was nominated by the Grammys last year, earning recognition in the Record of the Year category; Swift was also nominated at the 2013 ceremony for her "Hunger Games" soundtrack contribution, "Safe and Sound."
Swift's previous album, "Speak Now," was nominated for Best Country Album at the 2012 Grammys, but failed to win that trophy. In total, however, Swift has won seven Grammys, including Album of the Year for 2008's "Fearless."
