Grammy night triggers Twitter giggles and growls

Who is Beck? the Twitterverse asks. And Taylor Swift triggers her own whirlpool of tweets

Who is Beck? That was one of the most-asked questions of the night on Twitter after the 44-year-old's win for album of the year. Here's a quick primer: Beck (last name Hansen — no relation to the "MMMBop" musical brothers) is an alternative singer-songwriter who rose to fame in the 1990s. He's also a Scientologist — something that generated a lot of snark online, given the musician's surprise win. Yes, the telecast may have been a snooze, but the Internet's reaction to it was anything but.

I love @ladygaga. Spoke to her earlier and she mistook me for a waiter. Gotta love the #GRAMMYs. #INeedANewSuit? Aha.

No awards this year, Taylor. Keep dancing in your seat like a kitten distracted by string though.
