Alt J won the Mercury Prize and beat 11 other bands and their albums at the awards ceremony held last night in north London!
I knew Alt J would win - I said this in my post a few months ago when it was announced. I thought this because
1. Their album is definitely one of the best of the year
2. They're an obscure artist that not many people have heard of.
It is ALWAYS someone like this like last year PJ Harvey won instead of Elbow or even Adele!
I absolutely love Alt J though and they definitely deserved the award - I am going to see them in May and it should be epic!
