    I personally think Lana Del Rey should have won best pop vocal album. Paradise was the most original album on the list. But I knew it wouldn’t because the Grammys becomes more and more of a popularity contest each year.

    FUUURRRIOOUS!

    PARAMORE SHOULD HAVE WON SOMETHING. PARAMORE has had one of their biggest years yet – equal to their breakout year of “Riot/Misery Business”

    THE WAY THERE IS AN “MODERN R&B” and “CLASSIC R&B” grammy THE SAME NEEDS TO HAPPEN FOR ROCK! Rock bands from the 60’s-90’s STILL DOMINATE the rock categorys for DECADES. It’s not FAIR.

    THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN A “BEST MODERN POP/ROCK ALBUM” or “BEST CONTEMPORARY ROCK ALBUM” Hayley Williams of Paramore is finally getting recognition for having one of the best female rock voices behind Pink & Clarkson, so it’s unjust paramore didn’t win a single grammy after having ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL MODERN POP/ROCK singles “STILL INTO YOU” and album of the year.

    @Alex Just because something is “boring” doesn’t mean it’s not good. The amount of talent that went into that album is insane: Daft Punk is amazing, plus their collaborators have Grammys of their own!

    BTW, I thought they won 5? Other news outlets are reporting that they won 5 Grammys that night.
