Lady Antebellum dominated last night's Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.
LADY ANTEBELLUM, the American country group, cleaned up at last night's 53rd GRAMMY AWARDS (13th February 2011), scooping five awards.LADY ANTEBELLUM were winners in the categories of 'Record of the Year' and 'Song of the Year', for their smash hit ballad 'Need You Now'. The group, who were nominated for six awards, fell just short of a clean sweep when they were beaten to the 'Album of the Year' gong by Arcade Fire. The evening was not without controversy and Eminem took home only two awards after being nominated for ten. Elsewhere, the relatively unknown Esperanza Spalding defeated big favourite Justin Bieber to win 'Best New Artist'. The jazz artist told the packed out Staples Centre crowd, "I take this honour to heart so sincerely and I'll do my damnedest to make great music for all of you". Other big winners on the night were Lady GaGa, JAY-Z and John Legend, who each took home three awards.
LADY ANTEBELLUM, who released their second studio album 'Need You Know' on 26th January 2011, were also winners in the categories of 'Best Country Album', 'Best Country Song' and 'Best Country Performance by a Duo of Group with Vocal'.
