LOS ANGELES -- It's been a year of "Fearless" and fairytales for Taylor Swift.

The 20-year-old country cutie -- who has been on a winning streak for months with her hit album, "Fearless" -- won four Grammy Awards Sunday, including the night's top prize, album of the year.

"I did not see it coming tonight," she told reporters after the show. "This was a beautiful, beautiful surprise."

Earlier in the evening, Swift performed her song, "Today Was a Fairytale," which apparently became more and more true as the night went on. She also sang with one of her heroes, Stevie Nicks, on a mash-up that mixed Nicks' hit "Rhiannon" with Swift's award-winning "You Belong With Me."

Swift swiped the night's biggest prize, but Beyonce was the biggest winner. The multihyphenate entertainer made Grammy history as she collected six awards, the most won by a female artist in one night.
