The Ten Best Moments of the 2011 Grammy Awards

Lady Gaga Performing "Born This Way" The meaning of the curious egg apparatus became clear when Gaga performed the new single, "Born This Way": She climbed out of the now-glowing object to start the song, in a very-obvious birth metaphor. Now, this performance wasn't her best, and the costumes were actually rather tame; she sported some tan latex-looking thing with shoulder horns and a skirt/drape of the same color. However, the sleek techno-pop was different than anything else on display tonight-- and her dancing was much more precise and polished than it's been in the past. And heck, she even made a small detour to a piano decorated with severed doll heads and pounded out a Phantom of the Opera-esque scary interlude.

"Need You Now" Sweeps the Grammys Although this song was originally released in late 2009, the poetic drunk-dial garnered award after award, including for the coveted "Record of the Year" category. Lady Antebellum played a slowed-down version of the song on the broadcast -- a follow-up to the straightforward performance of the tune on last year's Grammys.
