LOS ANGELES — Mumford & Sons wrapped up a completely unpredictable Grammy Awards with perhaps the most surprising win of the night, taking home album of the year.

It was an event that even shocked the London folk-rockers.

"We figured we weren't going to win anything because The Black Keys have been sweeping up all day, rightfully so," Marcus Mumford said.

Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys ended up the night's top winner with four trophies, including producer of the year and three rock category victories with bandmate Patrick Carney. But it was hardly a clean sweep as The Recording Academy's thousands of voters spread the love for the year's top singles.

Fun. took home major awards best new artist, in something of an upset over Frank Ocean, and song of the year for the transcendent anthem "We Are Young," featuring Janelle Monae.
