As you probably heard, the Grammys happened last night. As you probably also heard, the Arcade Fire won Album of the Year. Surprising by itself, but even more surprising that this is the same group of voters who named Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” Song of the Year. Go figure.

Anywho, last night saw three new covers performed. We’ll be posting all three in the next couple hours, but we start with perhaps the most notable. Mick Jagger – who, believe it or not, has never performed at the Grammys before – paid tribute to Solomon Burke with “Everybody Needs Somebody to Love.” Raphael Saadiq joined on guitar, but, as tends to happen, it’s all about Mick. Watch below.  then check out our own tribute to Burke here! Thanks to the Audio Perv for video.
