Taylor Swift arrives at the Grammy Awards on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2010, in Los Angeles.

A sampling of quotes from Sunday's Grammy Awards.

"I just keep thinking back to when you're in second grade and you sing at your talent show the first time and people joke around and they say, 'Oh, maybe we'll see you at the Grammys someday.' That just seems like an impossible dream. I just feel like I'm standing here accepting an impossible dream right now and I thank you so much for that." — Taylor Swift, accepting the Grammy for best country album for "Fearless."

"You may be the coolest people in the world. This year your industry was saved by a 48-year-old Scottish cat lady in sensible shoes," said host Stephen Colbert, referring to Susan Boyle.

"I love 'Breathe' with Taylor (Swift) but I've been performing 'Lucky' with Jason (MRaz) all over the world in the past year so I'm glad that's what won." — Colbie Caillat.

"I want to collaborate with Common, who I met yesterday and I freaked out when I met. ... he said he wanted to work with me, too, so I'm very excited about that." — Colbie Caillat on future collaborations.

"If you put this in a machine, you can hear past Grammy winners." — Jason Mraz commenting on the eco-friendly tuxedo he wore, made from recycled polyester and a tie made from old cassette tapes.

"This is a Christmas album, so obviously I should thank Jesus Christ." — Stephen Colbert accepting his award for Best Comedy Album for his work, "A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All!"
