Album of the Year: Adele's "21"
The nominees for Album of the Year included...
Foo Fighters, "Wasting Light"
Lady Gaga, "Born This Way"
Bruno Mars, "Doo Wops & Hooligans"
After multiple summons to the podium, Adele finally broke down in tears to accept the Album of the Year award for "21" with her producers, including the Producer of the Year award-winner Paul Epworth. "This record is inspired by something really normal and everyone's been through it, which is a rubbish relationship," she said, wiping her nose. "Ooh! I've got a bit of snot!"
