It makes an old girl feel good." — 63-year-old singer-songwriter Bonnie Raitt, who earned her 10th career Grammy in the best Americana album category for "Slipstream," beating out a field that included Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers and The Avett Brothers.

After Gotye’s "Somebody That I Used to Know" won the Grammy for best pop duo/group performance, he revealed that Kimbra wasn’t his first, or even his second, choice for the song.

He had already gone through two female singers for the track and was waiting on another vocalist when "she called out."

"I built so much expectation with that vocalist that I was feeling a little crushed," he said backstage after collecting the Grammy.

It came down to Kimbra to sing on the song that was recorded in her apartment. It was last year’s biggest hit.

As for the unnamed singer, Gotye said she makes wonderful music on her own and "shouldn’t be mad."

Gotye also won the Grammy for best alternative music album for "Making Mirrors."

— Mesfin Fekadu

"I have to perform tonight so the wheels are constantly spinning. You can’t really just sit in your seat and take it all in." Frank Ocean on his expectations for the Grammy Awards.

— Beth Harris
