Upset of the night: Arcade Fire takes home Album of the Year!

I about jumped out of my couch in glee when Canada’s rock indie band Arcade Fire won last night for Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards! I absolutely LOVED the album “The Suburbs” one of my favorites of the year, for sure!

Was it surprising that an idie rock band, whose album has sold a mere 400,000 copies. Compare that to Lady Gaga’s “Fame Monster” which sold 5.8 million copies, and Eminem’s “Recovery” which sold 5.7 million.

Is Arcade Fire’s win an upset? Many sites are reporting the win a “shocking” one. Many suspected Lady Gaga’s, Lady Antebellum or Eminem would take home the prize.

After the win, the band tweeted: “OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD. Thank you EVERYONE.”

What do you think? Who should have taken home the prize for Album of the Year in your opinion?
