Stop! Grammy time! It's the 2011 Grammys, and Katy Perry brought her grandma to the show; Lady Gaga hatched herself out of an alien egg, only to later thank Whitney Houston; and Justin Bieber and Usher went H.A.M. on the Grammy stage. Meanwhile, Florence Welch, Christina Aguilera, Martina McBride, Yolanda Adams and Jennifer Hudson belted the roof off the Staples Center. And there were furious banjos! And puppets singing the clean version of a dirty song!
But you wanna know who won Grammys, right? Lady Antebellum was the biggest winner of the night with five Grammys, Lady Gaga, Jay-Z and John Legend each took home three Grammys, Eminem won two Grammys and Esperanza Spalding made Justin Bieber fans everywhere cry when she won the Grammy for Best New Artist.
