Beyonce takes home 6 Grammy Awards

But they were both outclassed in the record the year race by southern rock band Kings of Leon, which also ended up with three awards.

The Tennessee quartet, long more popular internationally, finally achieved mainstream success in the United States last year with the song “Use Somebody,” which crossed over to pop audiences. In a surprise victory, they become the first Nashville rock band to win record of the year.

Brothers Caleb, Nathan and Jared Followill and their cousin Matthew Followill also won a pair of Grammys in the rock field for the song, taking their career haul to four.
