55th Grammy Winners
The winners at the 55th annual Grammy Awards have been revealed. The big winner of the night was Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, who took home a whopping four Grammys including Producer Of The Year and Best Rock Album with "El Camino". A handful of artists took home three awards including Gotye for Record Of The Year, Best Pop Duo Performance with Kimbra, and Best Alternative Album with "Making Mirrors". Mumford & Sons won the coveted Album Of The Year award, but didn't expect it. Maybe they should have, because "Babel" sold a record-breaking 600,000 in its first week in the US, and 1.7 million sales in total since its launch. "We had six nominations and during the pre-telecast one after another went to (other bands)," singer Marcus Mumford told Billboard on the night. "We resigned ourselves (to not winning). Last year was Adele's year and this year will be the Black Keys'. It's not just bulls--t, we really didn't care about winning." Sir Paul McCartney also won a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album with "Kisses On The Bottom". Not everyone was happy with the Grammy ceremony. Slipknot singer Corey Taylor voiced his concern that the Grammys give too little coverage to heavy music:
