Rocks Off has been holding onto this little nugget of mind-blowing YouTube brilliance all week, waiting for the proper opportunity to use it. If you haven't seen it, underneath all that makeup is Karen Dreijer Andersson, lead singer of Swedish electro minimalists the Knife, accepting - if you can call it that - the award for Best Dance Artist she won in her solo Fever Ray guise at her homeland's P3 Gold awards last weekend.
Andersson's getup is a take-off on one of the outfits Lady GaGa wore to last year's MTV VMAs, which you probably would have read a lot more about had The Kanye not pulled his whole "Interrupting Taylor Swift" stunt. We have to say, we like Ms. Ray's poker face a lot better, and she sure raises the bar for GaGa and her wardrobe grunts for Sunday night's Grammy awards.
Speaking of, if you'd like to win a pair of tickets to G. Love and Special Sauce - who, it's safe to say, will not be dressed like this - at Warehouse Live next Saturday, we've got a little bit of Grammy-related gambling for you after the jump.
All you have to do is guess the number of Grammys our hometown girl Beyonce will take home Sunday night; she's up for 10. Leave your guess and email address in the comments; the first two people to leave the correct answer before the awards start at 7 p.m. Sunday will be our lucky winners. Good luck!
