The biggest news of the Grammy awards last night was the "out" and proud relationship of singers Rihanna and Chris Brown, despite their domestic abuse issues of Grammys past.

New bands Fun, Mumford and Sons, Gotye were the top winners at the 55th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday.

Brit artists Mumford & Sons collected album of the year for "Babel," their second album release.

The New York act Fun! took best new artist. "We Are Young," the band's massive hot anthemic ditty created with Janelle Monae, took best song for writers Nate Ruess, Jack Antonoff, Andrew Dost and Jeff Bhasker.

Vocalist Ruess joked when accepting the award: "This is in HD, you can see our faces, and we are not young."

The hypnotic song by Gotye, "Somebody That I Used to Know" won record of the year for the singer, made with Aussie singer Kimbra, producer-engineer Wally De Backer and engineers Francois Tetaz and William Bowden. The song also took best pop duo/group recording.

The textured, chunky rocknrolla sound of the Black Keys took home three trophies, as did Gotye, the duo of Jay-Z and Kanye West and EDM star Skrillex.

Fun, Mumford and Sons and  Frank Ocean took double wins.

Gotye's "Making Mirrors" was also tapped for best alternative music album.

The Ohio rockers Black Keys took home prizes for best rock performance and best rock song field with "Lonely Boy," written by singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach, drummer Patrick Carney and producer Danger Mouse (Brian Burton).

In the Jazz realm, keyboardist-composer Chick Corea, (18 Grammy wins) added to his total, winning for best instrumental composition ("Mozart Goes Dancing") and best improvised jazz solo ("Hot House," with vibraphonist Gary Burton).

Guitarist Pat Metheny captured his 20th Grammy for "Unity Band," named best jazz instrumental album.

Paul McCartney won his 16th Grammy for an unusual project: "Kisses On the Bottom," which was named best traditional pop vocal album.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross' "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" won best score soundtrack.

The best compilation score trophy was earned by Woody Allen's film "Midnight in Paris." "Once" won the best musical theater album.
