The televised portion of the 54th Annual Grammy Awards haven’t even begun yet, and already Foo Fighters are leading all winners with four trophies. Skrillex has three, as does Kanye West. Taylor Swift is (ironically?) right behind with two wins, the same number Adele has so far. And Bon Iver has converted one of his four nominations into a win, for Best Alternative Music Album, beating out Radiohead! “I had completely forgotten how stiff the competition was,” Justin Vernon told SPIN. “It’s a trip.” It is indeed, friends, and we’re about to embark on a three-and-a-half-hour-long one together at 8 p.m. Get ready for our official live blog to lift off then!
