    After all her wins, haven't you had convinced yourselves of how great she is? More fans do love her and her music than hate her. And for crying out loud, MJ had his time before. We can't always put him on the top. That's why we have new artists. And Taylor is a new and great artist. Others will have their times, too. There's nothing really to fuss about. Don't be like another Kanye. Hehe.

    what the f*ck . . . . all these freakin disney fans and bubble head teenage girls are the reason taylor is taking these awards away from grea artists! I mean fine she IS TALENTED i wont deny her that but please. So overrated

    I don't think Taylor Swift deserves an of the awards she's won - she's written two songs, one where she wishes she had a boyfriend and one where her boyfriend breaks up with her. It's all unoriginal recycled material, but she targets the tween audience, and it's definitely a successful strategy (look at all the twilight hype). Artists like her are given so much unworthy credit when it could be generic bubblegum blond being the face of their music, while artists with more talent and originality don't get the recognition they deserve. She has a smart market strategy though, so congrats to her publicist.

    "Exuse Michael Jackson is a legend he was singing when Taylor Swift wasn't even born. He doesn't have to do anythingelse ever his resume speaks for itself he is and will always be the KING OF POP![" And Sinatra was singing when Michael Jackson was a baby. I think he deserves award as well. Why did they forget him?

    How did Kings of Leon lose?!?!?! these awards so so lame. I've heard Taylor Swifts songs -- nothing special! typical teen angst lyrics. ugh. Yes and to me Kings of Leon sucks! So what's your point, you're right and I am wrong? Does not work that way my friend!

    Leave Taylor Swift alone. She's been busting her butt all year but what has Michael Jackson done besides unfortunately pass away? Released new music? No. Whitney Houston? I haven't heard one new song of hers being played on the radio. She's been on what, 1 talk show and 2 or 3 award shows and she's International Artist of the Year? What has she done?

    [quote=Ann White] Taylor Swift totally deserved the awards that she won because she writes all her songs, she has a great voice with a great stage presance and is involved in what goes on all of her videos. As a 19 year old girl she is amazingly talented and has worked her ass off to get where she is. She not like Britney Spears who got famous from being half naked, Taylor used pure talent and good sense.Sorry if you don't like country, but I like all genres of music and I think Taylor Swift ROCKS!!!!!!!! iT Ok i canda reacted soo badly cuz i was really wanting the other artists to win. But the thing that annoying me the most is the " OMYGOSH I SOO SWEET" thing. I luv her, but that kind of making me Gag.Sorry.
