While Scandalist is proud to announce that we predicted seventeen of last night’s Grammy winners, we’re still a little embarrassed. We couldn’t have guessed that the NARAS would pick the lesser-known Adele over Duffy for two awards, or that they’d love John Mayer‘s Rock Vocal even more than Bruce Springsteen‘s. But we’re disappointed that we underestimated the Fogey’s Curse. Robert Plant & Alison Krauss were a lock for Album Of The Year, but five awards for five nominations? We’ll never doubt you again, aging voters!
Here are some of last night’s big winners.
- Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, “Please Read The Letter”
The pair took home Album Of The Year, Record Of The Year, Best Pop Collaboration, Best Country Collaboration and Best Contemporary Folk/Americana Album. Talk about crossing genres.
- Adele, “Chasing Pavements”
Adele’s sales may be smaller than Duffy’s, but she still won Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
