Beyonce also seemed to make a statement when she presented the final award for the night, record of the year.
"Art is the unapologetic celebration of culture through self-expression. It can impact people in a variety of ways for different reasons at different times. Some will react. Some will respond. And some will be moved," she said, seeming to speak to those who were critical of her Super Bowl performance of the anthem, "Formation."
Swift, who won the album of the year Grammy for "Fearless" in 2009, walked away on Monday with three awards, including best pop vocal album and music video for "Bad Blood," at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
