Lady Gaga and country band Lady Antebellum were the big winners at last night’s Grammy Awards.

Lady Gaga scooped three awards, including Best Pop Vocal Album and was at her usual eccentric best during the evening.

She was carried down the events red carpet in a giant egg, before hatching out of the egg before performing her new song, ‘Born This Way’. She then went on to pay tribute to Whitey Houston.

“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,” the star added, before also winning the Best Short-From Video and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance awards.

Lady Gaga had a good night but for country trio, Lady Antebellum it was an exceptional night as the band bagged five awards.

They picked up Song of the Year and Record of the Year for their hit, ‘Need You Now.’

Christina Aguilera, Florence Welch, Martina McBride, Yolanda Adams and Jennifer Hudson opened the show with a tribute to Aretha Franklin, who is suffering from pancreatic cancer.

The 68-year-old appeared on the giant screen via a video link, and said, “I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to be with you this evening. Thank you to all of you who took the time to send me get well cards and flowers, beautiful flowers, and most importantly, your prayers.”

Other winners on the night included Jay Z, who picked up two gongs, for Empire State of Mind, as well as Eminem, Arcade Fire and John Legend.
