It was a big night for Canada at the Grammy Awards, with Arcade Fire taking home the biggest prize.
The Montreal-based group won album of the year for The Suburbs. Member Win Butler fell to his knees when the announcement was made.
But the big news both north and south of the border was Lady Gaga’s entrance.
The American singer-songwriter arrived ensconced inside a giant, translucent egg that was carried across the red carpet by half-naked men.
She ‘hatched’ from the cocoon to perform her latest single Born This Way.
Justin Bieber and Drake were also up for nominations but the moppet from Stratford and the pride of Degressi were both shut out.
Fellow Canadian Neil Young won best rock song for Angry World.
“This is my first Grammy for music, and it’s appreciated greatly,” Young said during the pre-telecast ceremony.
And even though Michael Bublé missed the ceremony, he won a Grammy for best traditional pop vocal album.
