If you happened to miss the 2013 Grammys last night, well, you didn’t exactly miss much. Aside from a Best New Artist that’s been around for 12 years (Fun.), an inexplicable Album of the Year, even for the Grammys (Mumford & Sons), and overall a series of incredibly boring live performances, it wasn’t exactly one for the books.
We’ve got the list of major winners below (via Rolling Stone), but aside from those mentioned above, there isn’t exactly a roster of surprises below—Adele, Gotye, Skrillex, the Black Keys, etc. Essentially, another year in which Top 40 radio dominated the Grammys.
