2011 Grammys: Lady GaGa and Lady Antebellum Add More Golden Gramophones
Lady GaGa and Lady Antebellum bag more coveted prizes at the live telecast of the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards taking place at Los Angeles' Staples Center. The former wins Best Pop Vocal Album for her "The Fame Monster", and the latter gets Best Country Album and Song of the Year.
"I need to thank Whitney Houston," the Mother Monster says. "I wanted to thank Whitney, because when I wrote 'Born This Way,' I imagined she was singing it -- because I wasn't secure enough in myself to imagine i was a superstar. So, Whitney, I imagined you were singing born this way when I wrote it."
Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum, meanwhile, thanks all. "This past year has completely changed our whole lives and we love you all," she says when collecting one of their Golden Gramophones. Earlier that night, they performed the winning song with "Glee" 's Lea Michele and the Green Bay Packers' Clay Matthews introducing them.
The other winners are Muse and Esperanza Spalding. The band win Best Rock Album for "The Resistance", beating Jeff Beck, Pearl Jam, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Neil Young. Calling the victory as "a great, genuine surprise," Matthew Bellamy thanks his "beautiful, pregnant girlfriend over there" Kate Hudson.
As for Spalding, she has certainly upset the Beliebers - she snatches Best New Artist prize from competitor Justin Bieber. She additionally pushes aside Drake, Florence and the Machine and Mumford & Sons to win the title.
