grammy winners

grammy winners

The Grammys night was somewhat owned by the all-American country pop act Lady Antebellum(pictured left) but the biggest surprise emerged from north of the border. Arcade Fire grabbed the Grammy for Best Album of the year for their third full length "The Suburbs", sweeping aside the records from Lady Antebellum, Eminem, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry in the process.

To say this was unexpected would be an understatement. Earlier in the evening, Arcade Fire dropped the Best Alternative Album Grammy to the Black Keys’ “Brothers.” This sets up an interesting theoretical question for Grammyologists: how could “The Suburbs” be designated the best album overall when it isn’t even the best album in its genre? The band doesn’t have the mainstream recognition of Eminem or Lady Gaga, but ever since “Funeral” their 2004 debut, Arcade Fire has been one of the most lauded groups in rock.

So a great night for Lady Antebellum, Arcade Fire and all the participants in the music awards ceremony.
