Grammy Awards doing their best to quickly become irrelevant

grammy_awardThe 53rd Grammy Awards produced several surprise results last night, with favored artists including The Bieber and Eminem losing out to lesser-known acts.

In the biggest say what of the night, the coveted album of the year award which was been expected to go to Eminem for his comeback record ‘Recovery’, the highest selling of 2010 in the US, went instead to Arcade Fire for ‘The Suburbs’.

Meanwhile Bieber, the 16-year-old sensation, lost out on the award for best new artist to Esperanza Spalding, an obscure 26-year-old jazz singer and bassist from Portland, Oregon.

There is nothing wrong with either winner, the problem is with awards going to these lesser known acts, fans are going to stop caring about the Grammy’s more than they do already.

Between the weirdness quotient (yes we are talking to you Gaga), and the unknowns winning we are going to take the night to sleep on this before commenting further, but if the instant reaction on Facebook and twitter are to be believed, the Grammy’s are in trouble.
