Best New Artist: Bon Iver
The nominees for Best New Artist included...
The Band Perry
Despite having an indie credibility crisis in the press when his Grammy nominations were announced, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon managed to keep it together while winning the Best New Artist award. His acceptance speech was awkward, but gracious. "I'm a little bit uncomfortable up here but with that sense of discomfort I do have a sense of gratitude," he said. "I'd like to say thank you to all the non-nominees who aren't here and have never been here. I want to say thank you to all the voters of course. Sweet hook-up."
