Grammy Award Winners

Relative upsets abound, the 2013 Grammy's managed to hand out a mere 10 awards during a 3 hour+ telecast. 

Winning 3 awards a piece (including off air) were Gotye (Record of the Year, Best Pop Due/Group Performance, Best Alternative Music Album), The Black Keys (Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, Best Rock Album) and the Jay-Z/Kanye West pairing (Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration).  Double winners were Fun. (Song of the Year, Best New Artist), Carrie Underwood (Best Country Solo Performance, Best Country Song) and Frank Ocean (Best Urban Contemporary Album and sharing Best Rap/Sung Colaboration with West and Jay-Z) while Kelly Clarkson won Best Pop Vocal Album and Zac Brown Band took home Best Country Album.  The biggest award of the night (Album of the Year) went to Mumford & Sons.

On a side note, Adele managed to continue her unbelievable streak, winning a 7th Grammy Award despite not having a new record to speak of (Best Pop Solo Performance for a live version of "Set Fire to the Rain").

FUN FACT: Keen observers probably noticed flower petals randomly falling on the stage throughout the night all the way through the final performance of the night by Frank Ocean.  These were remaining flowers from the very first performance of the night, by Taylor Swift.

The full winner's list is below...
