St. Vincent won "Best Alternative Music Album" at the Grammys tonight (before the telecast)! Past winners of that award include U2, REM, Tom Waits, Beck, Nirvana, Radiohead, Beastie Boys, Coldplay, The White Stripes, The Black Keys, Bon Iver, Gotye, and Vampire Weekend. This year she beat Alt-J, Cage The Elephant, Jack White and Arcade Fire who have lost in this category three times (but have won in other categories).

Beck, no longer "alternative", won "Best Rock Album", but lost "Best Rock Song" to Paramore (who also beat Jack White). Jack White however did win "Best Rock Performance", beating Ryan Adams, The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, and... Beck.

UPDATE: Beck also won Album of the Year!
