Foo Fighters won five awards including best rock album, and Kanye West took home four including best rap album for “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.”

“I can’t believe I’m getting emotional already. My life changed when I wrote ["Someone Like You"], and I felt it before anyone even heard it,” she said while accepting the pop vocal performance award. “And seeing as it’s a vocal performance, I need to thank my doctors, I suppose, who brought my voice back.”
