Kanye West, Skrillex, Tony Bennett, Foo Fighters and... Betty White are among the winners of the Pre-Telecast Grammy ceremony. A handful of major trophies were presented before the main Grammy ceremony, which kicks off from the Staples Center in Los Angeles at 8 pm EST.

West has earned three Grammys thus far, winning Best Rap Album for "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" and Best Rap Collaboration and Best Rap Song for that album's single "All of the Lights." "Fantasy" defeated "Watch The Throne," West's collaborative album with Jay-Z, for the Best Rap Album prize. Jay Z wins on 'Otis' Collaboration, and Rihanna wins on 'All of the Lights' collaboration with Kanye West.


Chris Brown wins Grammy.  Kelly Price, Ledisi, Chris Brown, El DeBarge and R. Kelly all competed in the Best R&B Album category at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday night (Feb. 12), however, Brown went home with the coveted award for his fourth studio album, 'F.A.M.E.'

The 22-year-old R&B singer walked up to the podium to accept his award, presented by rapper Common and actress Taraji P. Henson, dressed in a black leather jacket and black button down shirt, which was opened wide to show off his chest tattoos.

"First and foremost I just got to thank God," Brown said with a Grammy award in his hand. The Virginia native admitted he was "nervous" and made his acceptance speech brief as a result.

"I want to thank the Grammys," he shared. "Team Breezy, this is all for you. We got one."
