How did Alternative do at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards?

by Jay Morris

Here is my highlight from the 56th Annual Grammy awards, Imagine Dragons with Kendrick Lamar


Alternative Grammy Winners 

ALBUM OF THE YEAR - "Random Access Memories," from Daft Punk -- Beat out some pretty solid competition from Taylor Swift, Macklemore, and Kendrick Lamar. Don't think I would call this an upset, but I didn't pick the robots to win this one. 

RECORD OF THE YEAR "Get Lucky," from Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams - - I am just glad it wasn't Robin Thicke. I always thought  this was a better song than Blurred Lines. 

SONG OF THE YEAR "Royals" from Lorde-- Was really pulling for Lorde on this, this was a song I loved at first listen. 

BEST POP SOLO PERFORMANCE "Royals" from Lorde -- An upset? Maybe a mild one over Bruno, Justin, and Katy. 

BEST NEW ARTIST Macklemore and Ryan Lewis -- Good win, interesting performance during the show as 34 couples exchanged vows and rings and walked down the aisles during the song "Same Love" . 

BEST ROCK PERFORMANCE "Radioactive," from Imagine Dragons --Glad the Dragons won, but I still don't see them as a "rock" act. 

BEST ALTERNATIVE MUSIC ALBUM "Modern Vampires in the City" from Vampire Weekend -- Great win, great album.
