"We are thrilled and very grateful to everybody who's been excited for us... It's been a wonderful time," Krauss said.

Plant, the frontman of Led Zeppelin, too, was excited by the win.

"I'm bewildered...In the old days we'd have called this selling out, but it's a good way to spend a Sunday," he said.

Rapper Lil Wayne, who had eight nominations, won four Grammys, including rap album of the year. Coldplay won three, included song of the year for 'Viva La Vida'.

Jennifer Hudson won her first Grammy for best R&B album.

British singer Adele won two Grammys - for Best female pop vocal and for Best New Artist.
