OK, I am still on a fucking high.

Arcade Fire is my favourite band and to see them win was awesome. I screamed so loud when I heard they won. I just can't believe it, because I was convinced that the Academy would give it to Eminem or something.

I was underwhelmed with Month of May, not the choice itself, but it seemed like there was something wrong with the mixing. I saw them live twice last year and Month of May sounded great both times.

It was great to see them close with Ready To Start, though.

I'm so happy. I love you all.

Wow didn't expect Arcade Fire to win, they're a kind of band that's usually nominated to make the list look good and then just get Best Alternative award. The Suburbs didn't do much for me but then I don't feel particularly strongly about any album in that category.

^ditto! Awesome end to the show with Ready to Start.. And yeah, Month of May seemed off somehow.

I don't know how its possible to lose best alternative album but win album of the year, but I love both albums so fuck it.

Black keys and arcade fire both bring home grammys... park slope just collectively "meh'd"

Perhaps they felt either of two things:

Black Keys better defined 'alternative'

They felt pity for the Black Keys (much in the sense of Taylor Swift winning female VMA, Beyonce winning best video, Kanye doing his preemptive stupidity)

maybe

 
or perhaps marshall mathers and ladies gaga and antebelum split the vote, leaving room for our canadian bretheran to swoop in and steal the award, much in the same way that u2 and dylan split the vote in 2002... naaaaaah they probably felt pity for them

You're absolutely right, but you shoulda used the radio edit of Eye In The Sky to make your point

Relax, wasn't that serious about them feeling pity.

Nah I got that too...but I don't think Cee Lo's puppets were actually Muppets (unless they've changed drastically!)...from afar, they looked sortof like them but they weren't the actual Muppets.

But the message/nod/homage was there, for sure.

I don't think there was a single soul in the building other than the groupies in the front pit. There were zero crowd shots apres 11:15
