It took fun. a few years to get the recognition they deserved, but at tonight's Grammy Awards, the band took home the trophy for Best New Artist, beating out Frank Ocean, The Alabama Shakes, and others in the process. Lead singer Nate Ruess was a former member of The Format, which began recording music in 2001.

"I didn't think we were gonna win this one," Ruess said. "I've gotta pee so bad, so I'm gonna leave it to these guys."
