Surprised that Arcade Fire won Album of the Year, as was just about everyone else . But seriously, Lady Antebellum won both Record AND Song of the Year?
I just listened to “Need You Now” for the first time. While it is a very good country-pop song, it’s nothing special, not award-winning special, anyway. Granted that Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love The Way You Lie” wasn’t very unique in its musicality, either, it was an emotional tour-de-force of a song and one of Eminem’s best.
Also, quite happy that Muse won Rock Album of the Year! Go Muse!
