The last name announced to take the podium of Los Angeles' Nokia Theater to accept a trophy was Lady GaGa. The dance queen was handed Video of the Year by Cher for "Bad Romance" and as a thank-you to her Little Monster, she announced the title of her highly-anticipated album.
It is named "Born This Way" and GaGa performed a bit of song a capella. "How beautiful in my way cuz God makes no mistakes. I'm on the right track. Baby, I was born this way," she sang.
