The 2011 Grammy Award Winners

By the time the 53rd Grammys wrapped up last night, Lady Antebellum rode away with five awards (including Record and Song Of The Year, and Best Country Song)—though they lost out on Album Of The Year in a surprise upset to Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs. Meanwhile, Lady Gaga—who arrived at the shindig in an alien pod—clinched a Best Pop Vocal Album win for The Fame Monster, and during her speech gave thanks to Whitney Houston. “I wanted to thank Whitney, because when I wrote ‘Born This Way‘ I imagined she was singing it…” Interesting—most other people thought she imagined Madonna. Watch Gaga’s acceptance speech, and catch the list of Grammy winners, below!

Lady Gaga accepts her Best Pop Vocal Album award for The Fame Monster, and gives surprising props to Whitney Houston for inspiring new single “Born This Way.”
