The singer, who is a jazz bassist and singer, also beat out Drake, Florence and the Machine, and Mumford and Sons for the big prize. Poor Justin Bieber will have to keep waiting for a Grammy!

Justin probably wasn't too surprised that he didn't pick up the win. He tweeted earlier in the day: "not expecting much...they never really have given awards to young acts so just excited to be here and nominated. but #NeverSayNever" he tweeted.
