Irish rockers U2 cleaned up at the Grammys in Los Angeles last night, winning gongs in all five of the categories for which they were nominated.
This brings the band's Grammy tally up to 22, ranking them no 6 on the all-time list of Grammy winners.
Bono et all were there to collect the awards for Album of the Year and Best Rock Album for How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb; Best Rock Song for 'City Of Blinding Lights'; Best Vocal Rock Performance and Best Song 'You Can't Make It On Your Own', which was a tribute to Bono's late father.
"I want to thank my father Bob for giving me voice and a bit of attitude," he said in their acceptance speech.
He added: "If you think this is going to our head, it's too late."
The Dubliners then went on to perform 'Vertigo' and 'One', which featured R&B star Mary J Blige.
