Coldplay and Lil Wayne Were Big Winners At Grammys

Posted by Fara Kearnes on February 9, 2009 4:10 PM |

lil wayneYou just knew Lil Wayne was going to walk away with a load of awards at the Grammys last night after his phenomenal year. The bigger surprise was when Led Zeppelin's frontman and rock legend Robert Plant was showered with 5 awards, including record and album of the year, for his collaboration with country bluegrass star Alison Krauss on "Raising Sand."

Lil Wayne had eight nominations but had to settle for three awards, including best rap album for his "Tha Carter III."

Chris Martin and Coldplay won four awards including song of the year for “Viva La Vida.”

Krauss’ five Grammys bring her total to 26, tying her for third place on the all-time Grammy list behind Sir Georg Solti and Quincy Jones. Adele won for best new artist, John Mayer won for best rock solo vocal, and Whitney Houston got a standing ovation when she announced the Grammy for Best R&B Album Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson.

Hudson, who suffered the loss of her mother, brother, and nephew in a horrible triple murder last year, was the emotional moment of the show. She sang “You Pulled Me Through” and told the crowd upon accepting her award: “I’d like to thank my family in heaven and those who are here tonight.”

Led Zeppelin received a lifetime achievement award in 2005 but otherwise the rockers had never been acknowledged at the Grammys for their best selling albums and innovative music style. "I'm bewildered," said Plant of his haul of awards last night. "In the old days we would have called this selling out, but I think it's a good way to spend a Sunday."

Aside from Jennifer Hudson's appearance, the talk was about the missing Rihanna and Chris Brown, both nominated for awards and scheduled to perform. Brown was arrested for assaulting RiRi the night before.
