    Taylor Swift made history yet again by becoming the first artist to secure Album of the Year four times. Though there’s a lot to celebrate for Swift and her fans, her behavior on stage has ignited controversy.

    As Dion announced her win on the Grammys stage on Sunday, Taylor warmly embraced collaborators Jack Antonoff and Lana Del Rey but seemingly ignored Dion. The legendary singer seemed awkward as she was left unacknowledged on stage while Taylor went ahead to deliver her acceptance speech.

    Several viewers took to social media to express their disappointment and accuse Swift of rudeness. “The way Taylor Swift just took the Grammy out of Celine Dion’s hand and didn’t even hug her or thank her … how rude,” a user stated on X.

    Taylor Swift will never EVER live down ignoring Céline Dion at the Grammys,” another one wrote. A third user said it feels personal to see what happened, stating, “Taylor Swift not acknowledging Celine Dion don’t sit right with me.”

    Some others pointed out that the snub is especially disrespectful given the context of Dion’s return to the stage after being diagnosed with stiff person syndrome (SPS), a rare neurological disorder. Dion’s appearance on stage to present the final award was a surprise and marked an emotional comeback. She even received a standing ovation from the audience, only to be seemingly left ignored by Swift.

    Taylor Swift not saying thank you to Celine Dion or even addressing her After the year Celine’s had not being able to perform was classless. I’m honestly shocked. Celine deserves better,” another user on X wrote with the context of Dion’s illness and comeback.

    However, some other fans spoke up in Taylor’s favor, sharing some backstage photos of the two singers clicking pictures together. The images showed the two hugging each other and sporting wide smiles, seemingly putting an end to any speculation of Taylor disrespecting Dion or having bad blood with her.
