Fuck yes!

Wow. So happy for them. Win couldn't contain his smile when they kicked into Ready To Start. Damn, that was a great moment.

Two years in a row the Grammys got it right for AOTY.

I'll have a drink for the underdogs. Fuck you, Lady Antebellum. Rock and roll.

us west coasters got spoiled, oh well


GaGa was better for me tonight, when did she start using female dancers?

as for Arcade Fire, I am sad, they are one legit rock band, that makes good music

it seems once anyone wins a grammy their music goes down hill fast

I'm so glad they got to play another (better) song.

Has anyone ever won Album of the Year and not won another Grammy in their entire career before or after? This is pretty unprecedented...usually, the Album of the Year winner would at least win the smaller genre category for the same album, but I guess it was such a foregone conclusion for most voters, hence why they gave a lot of love to The Black Keys.

No prize for you...

You said..."could they actually win Album of the year instead?"

which was really a question....not a statement.

I'm just joshing you...

They did Ready To Start immediately after accepting the award for AOTY.

It was awesome. They were visibly thrilled. You can tell it was a big moment for them. Damn. Great shit.

Yay for good rock and roll music.

I don't think anyone is going to stop listening to Arcade Fire for winning this award, but nice try. They're already a huge, huge band.
