Cat Deeley said that this is where people are to be controversial, but she was glad just to be home.
Without too much aplomb, the winner was perhaps unsurprisingly Lady GaGa, who took to the stage complete with huge hair and amazing mask.
Did you know she wrote songs for the likes of Britney Spears before she was 21? Well, you do now.
"Hello" she purred once on the stage. "My fans in the UK, thank you," she continued.
Looking a bit tearful, Lady Gaga said that people couldn't realise how much the award means to her, finally thanking the late Alexander McQueen.
The nominees were Animal Collective, Daniel Merriweather, Empire of the Sun, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift.
