The British quartet scooped Album Of The Year, arguably the top award at the bash, for Babel.

The Daily Star quoted Ben Lovett, 26, as saying: "America has been so good to us.

"We've toured hard and we're excited about taking on the responsibility of being a big-boy band and stepping into the shoes of the big guys."

Marcus Mumford, 26, said the band thought that they would walk away empty-handed.

"One after another it was like: 'And the winner is Black Keys, the Black Keys, the Black Keys'.

"And so I think we just sort of resigned ourselves, like last year was Adele's year, it was the Black Keys' year and good on 'em, they're f*****g awesome.

"We honestly were just happy to be nominated. We really didn't care about winning."
