An unexpected win! But you can't deny how beautiful this man's music is!

The immensely talented indie rocker Bon Iver surprised us by beating out The Band Perry, J. Cole, Nicki Minaj, and Skrillex for the Best New Artist of the 54th Grammy Awards!

Although he seemed nervous, he gave a very sweet acceptance speech, and acknowledged all of the other talent out there who are not always recognized by the Academy!

Congratulations are certainly in order!

    Since when is he a new artist? Love him. He was right about how people who should be there won't ever get to be there, but we have men who beat up woman get awarded and get to perform, and people who write songs like "stupid hoe", are called "talent"…

    Congrats definitely deserved it

    God, I love this band so damn much. Been listening since they first came out years ago and couldn't be prouder. It's weird that they won for Best New Arist, but it's a win none the less. His speech was also awesome, and you could tell he genuinely appreciated the win. Two Grammys tonight for them! Congrats to all the guys and Justin.

    His name is Justin Vernon and his band is called Bon Iver. One of the best live bands ever.

    Re: SarahNJ – You obviously only look at talent as a one way street.

    Seriously? Who is this guy? I thought this was a comedic interlude, really? He's for real?

    Re: NotSoGay – Yes he is real. He is musically one of the most talented people to walk this planet. Its ignorance like yours that have prevented people like him to be recognised correctly. The only deserved winner of the night. I suggest you look him up and listen to his music.

    Such beautiful music he makes! This is what the grammys should be about… REAL artists

    I find it insulting that he won for "new artist". He's been around for years. Maybe if people weren't listening to constant crap, he would have won this award way back.
