Photos: Grammy Award sweeps
While surprise winners occasionally pepper the annual Grammy Awards, some years it feels like telecast organizers would be better off setting up a chair onstage so that one lucky (and effusively grateful) artist doesn't have to make the trek from the audience to the podium again and again. However, the sight of the decorated trying to juggle an armful of gold gramophones more than makes up for the ceremony's lack of spontaneity.
