The 55th Annual Grammy Awards took place Sunday and fun. won two major awards.
The band, made up of Nate Ruess, Andrew Dost, and Jack Antonoff, tied Kanye West, Mumford & Sons, The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, Jay-Z, and Frank Ocean for the most nominations this year, with six each.
Their first year up for Grammy awards, fun. was nominated for Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "We Are Young," and Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for "Some Nights." They ended the night winning Best New Artist and Song of the Year.
The band took the stage early in the night to perform "Carry On." The performance featured a rainstorm in the middle of the song.
"Some Nights" is fun.'s second studio album. While the band's first album, 2009's "Aim and Ignite," received generally positive reviews, it was not nearly as commercially successful as "Some Nights." The three singles off of "Some Nights," the title track, "Carry On," and "We Are Young," helped to bring fun. into the mainstream, leading the band to an appearance on "SNL" and a whirlwind summer tour.
The 55th Annual Grammy Awards were hosted by LL Cool J on Feb. 10 at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

This amalgam of rockers and hip-hop stars perform "No Sleep Till Brooklyn" to honor the late MCA. CBS, however, cuts them off with an rundown of the night's sponsors. Classy.
