2011 Grammy Awards Winners: Esperanza Spalding, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire
The 2011 Grammy Awards had tons of winners last night and here is a quick rundown of three of them.
Grammy Awards 2011 has come and gone and while Lady Gaga being a winner was no surprise, Esperanza Spalding and Arcade Fire were. Spalding beat out Justin Bieber for the best new artist Grammy and Arcade Fire took home the highly coveted Album of the Year award. Two major disappointments as Justin Bieber was certain he would win and I was almost 100% certain Eminem would walk away with album of the year; oh well.
Lady Gaga, amidst her wacky performance where she hatched out of an egg, took home two Grammy Awards last night. Perhaps the biggest story regarding the 2011 Grammy Winners is the Justin Bieber – Esperanza Spalding upset. Immediately Bieber Fever fans took to Spalding’s Wikipedia and let her have it with some nasty comments. The Biebs even said he was surprised and disappointed but that he would be back next year; let’s hope not.
Another one of the winner’s who was a shocker was Arcade Fire taking home Album of the Year. I was sure that Eminem’s Recovery would be a shoe in for that Grammy but I was wrong. I have nothing against Arcade Fire as they are pretty damn amazing. I’d like to congratulate all of the winners at last night’s 2011 Grammy Awards.
