Brits scoop awards at Grammys

British stars Muse, La Roux and Jeff Beck have scooped awards at the Grammys - where Lady Gaga hatched from a giant egg.

Muse won the rock album gong for The Resistance, while London duo La Roux took home best electronic/dance album for their self-titled debut.



English guitarist Jeff Beck won two awards - best pop instrumental performance and rock instrumental performance.



Lady Gaga stole the show in typically eccentric fashion by being carried down the red carpet and on to the stage in an egg.



Her trophies included best female pop vocal performance for Bad Romance and pop vocal album for The Fame Monster.



In another colourful performance, Gwyneth Paltrow performed Forget You with Cee Lo Green and The Muppets.



Justin Bieber had been hotly tipped to do well at this year's ceremony but was left empty-handed.











Katy Perry put paid to rumours of trouble in her marriage by performing in front of footage from her wedding ceremony in India.



Her husband, Russell Brand, watched her rendition of Not Like The Movies as the US singer was lifted into the air on a special love seat.



The couple also shared a smooch in front of photographers on the red carpet before the awards.



British star Florence Welch helped open the ceremony with Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson in a tribute to Aretha Franklin.



She lost out on the prize of best New Artist to US jazz artist Esperanza Spalding.



Franklin, who recently had surgery for an undisclosed ailment, made a nationally televised appearance in a taped message, saying: "I wish that I could have been with you all tonight, but since I couldn't - next year, OK?"



Album Of The Year went to Canadian band Arcade Fire for The Suburbs, while Record of the Year was won by country music trio Lady Antebellum for Need You Now.



Rapper Eminem was nominated for 10 awards but took home just two - both in the rap categories, for best album for Recovery and solo performance for Not Afraid.



Rockers Muse performed at their Grammy debut.



Other British winners included Sir Paul McCartney - who scooped a trophy for Solo Rock Vocal Performance for Helter Skelter.



The Beatles won best Historical Album for The Beatles (the original studio recordings), while Julie Andrews took home the prize for Spoken Word Album For Children for her collection of poems, songs and lullabies.



Sade won an R&B performance gong for Soldier Of Love. Iron Maiden won Best Metal Performance for El Dorado.
