Arcade Fire captured the album of the year award at the Grammys for the "The Suburbs," a surprise win that left Eminem shut out in all the top categories.

It was the rockers' only win on the night; they had been nominated for two other awards.

Arcade Fire beat out Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now," Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream," "The Fame Monster" by Lady Gaga and Eminem's "Recovery" — 2010's best selling album.

This is now the third time Eminem has lost the best album trophy. He led all nominees with 10 and won two.
