Not surprisingly The Black Keys dominated the awards show with wins for Best Rock Album and Best Rock Performance, along with trophies for Producer of the Year and Best Rock Song.

Jay-Z and Kanye West won Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for "No Church in the Wild," which featured Frank Ocean and The Dream, and they also won Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for "N****s In Paris."

Fun won Song of the Year for their catchy hit "We Are Young" and Rihanna picked up the award for Best Short Form Music Video for "We Found Love. As far as the other big trophies, Fun also won Best New Artist, Gotye & Kimbra won Record of the Year for "Somebody That I Used to Know," and finally, Mumford & Sons won Album of the Year for Babel.
