Imagine Dragons already had one coveted award to their name before tonight's GRAMMY Awards, taking home the title of Billboard's Breakthrough Band of 2013. They coupled that with GRAMMY nominations for Record of the Year and Best Rock Performance for their smash single, "Radioactive," winning the latter before tonight's televised ceremony.
All this happened while the Las Vegas rockers were supporting their debut full-length, Night Visions. So it's easy to understand if the quartet are still spinning from all the attention. It's even easier to understand their surprise and excitement when Kendrick Lamar, one of the best active rappers in the game, called them up to see if they wanted to perform during the GRAMMYs.
"The first time we got together to rehearse, it was really clear that we were all on the same page," the band told Fuse's Jack Osbourne on the red carpet. "We all wanted to deliver the same performance and it worked from the beginning. It's usually not like that, so that was a really rare thing."
Imagine Dragons faced stiff competition for Best Rock Performance, with fellow nominees including Jack White, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie and Queens of the Stone Age. "If we were to win against any of those dudes I think we would feel like we'd have to jump off a cliff," the group continued. "We're honored to be nominated and we're not counting on winning."
Well, so much for that. The boys took home their first GRAMMY and they better find their cliff-jumping shoes ASAP. If you watch the full interview above, you can also find out where the band plan to record their new album this summer and remember to keep an eye on all of Fuse's 2014 GRAMMY coverage.
