Diplo and Skrillex? Seriously???

Skrillex & Diplo win best album.  Ugh.

every day of my life,
I fear no evil for The Lord is with me.

Fuck Jack Ü, fuck Justin Bieber.

The live stream seems kinda boring, No guest presenters, loads of empty seats.  All seems very perfunctory.

It's actually the "premiere ceremony" apparently. They give a lot of awards that they don't have time for in the actual show.
Hey at least Diplo just lost a Grammy for Best producer ! Fingers crossed for Tame Impala who could (and should) win best alternative album

Got it. So best dance/electronc album is in the pre-show but best dance recording is later in the main show. Weird.
Also I thought "EDM" was big in America these days so I'm surprised the 'album' category wasn't scheduled for the main show.
Anyway the Grammys are clearly rubbish as neither Chems, Jamie XX nor Caribou won the album prize.

Well, I guess it's how the business works. You're new, you probably win. You're "established" and constantly deliver quality, you lose out to the new guys. I know where my heart is.
Glad I fell asleep last night.

Diplo is far from new, man. But last years Aphex Twin won over deadmau5, so it's not always that way.

But Jack Ü as a group is fairly new and it's actually their debut album. That's what I was aiming at.
