The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, 2011

This post is dedicated, for a change, to 2011 Grammy Award winners for Rock Album of the Year, Muse!

Seeing them on the red carpet was awesome! Then their performance of Uprising was outstanding! Then, to top it off, they won Rock Album of the Year for The Resistance. I can't begin to tell you how proud I am of Matthew Bellamy, Dominic Howard and Chris Wolstenholme, and how proud I am to be a muser right now! And all of this couldn't have happened on a more fitting day either; the two month anniversary of my first Muse gig! :')

The Resistance Towers made a comeback for the live performance. And, in the words of Lenny Kravitz as he introduced Muse to the stage, 'some bands play a concert, others start an uprising'. I don't think truer words have ever been spoken! Muse took to the stage and it was brilliant! Tom Kirk did a magnificent job with the visuals and the Uprising protesters really made the performance all the more epic! That, my friends, is what rock and roll is all about!

Then, to have Muse win a Grammy for their album The Resistance was incredible! You could tell how much of a surprise it was for the guys as they went up to accept their award. There was awkwardness, there was talking-way-too-fast-and-mumbling-through-the-speech from Matt, as well as a thank you from Matt to his 'beautiful pregnant girlfriend', and a thank you from Dom to the fans! The Resistance is a spectacular album and the award is well deserved by the boys.

I went completely fangirl every single time Muse were on screen or even just mentioned, so coherency wasn't really a strong suit of mine today. So, to help everyone live or, for some, to relive the experience, here are some Muse-highlights from the Grammys! :)
[Which will be posted as soon as they become available because I cbf looking for them right now :)]
