Macklemore & Ryan Lewis picked up the Grammy Award for best new artist.
The win brought the Seattle rap duo's total to four awards just moments into Sunday night's telecast from Staples Center in Los Angeles. This, after they won best rap song and rap performance for "Thrift Shop," and best rap album for "The Heist" in a stunning three-minute period during the pre-telecast awards ceremony at the nearby Nokia Theatre.
Macklemore appeared on stage in an emerald green tux and seemed momentarily without words as he surveyed the crowd.
