Grammys open thread (Bon Iver won one in the pre-show; Kanye West & Skrillex each have 3 already)
Justin Vernon & My Morning Jacket before the Grammys (by dariusjagjag)
Someone from Jagjaguwar tweeted the above picture not long before Justin Vernon shouted out “Jagjaguwar” to end his acceptance speech at the Grammys pre-show this evening (2/12).
Bon Iver won “Best Alternative Music Album”, beating out Radiohead, My Morning Jacket, Foster the People & Death Cab Cab For Cutie. Other pre-telecast winners include Adele, Foo Fighters (who beat Mastodon, The Decemberists and TV on the Radio), Skrillex (who won three already and beat Cut Copy, Robyn, Deadmau5 and others), Kanye West (who also won three already), The Civil Wars (who won two already and beat Fleet Foxes), Levon Helm, Alison Krauss, Tinariwen, Louis CK, Cee-Lo, and Booker T Jones who won “Best Pop Instrumental Album” for the 2nd time, and nervously thanked Biz Markie, Questlove, Gabriel Roth (of Daptone Records), Matt Berninger (of the National), and Lou Reed.
Arcade Fire also won another Grammy already (for Best Recording Package).
And that was just all the stuff they don’t show on TV. The regular show with all the big awards (and possibly more for Bon Iver) starts at 8pm EST, Whitney Houston tribute included.
