GRAMMYs Album of the Year: Beck Wins for ‘Morning Phase’

By Kevin Rutherford

He may have flown under the radar the whole ride, but in the end, Beck came out on top.

The rocker scored the award for Album of the Year for his album Morning Phase—and seemed as baffled as many upon accepting his award, even weathering a fake Kanye West stage storming to do so.

As he reached the stage, West faked a juke toward the microphone, presumably to say that Beyonce had one of the best albums of all time.

And if he wasn’t joking, he at least thought better about it.

He beat out Beyonce’s Beyonce, Ed Sheeran’s X, Sam Smith’s In the Lonely Hour and Pharrell’s G I R L for the award.

Prince presented the award, making a strong declaration before revealing the winner.  “Like books and black lives, albums still matter,” he said to a round of applause.
