LOS ANGELES: Beyonce became the most decorated female on a Grammy night as she collected six trophies, including song of the year for her anthem Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It). But it was another diva - Taylor Swift - who nabbed the top honor, album of the year, for her best-selling Fearless.

Swift, who won a total of four awards, jumped around like the 20-year-old kid that she is when she beat out Beyonce, the Dave Matthews Band, Lady Gaga and the Black Eyed Peas for the honor.

"Oh wow - thank you so much! I just hope that you know how much this means to me," said Swift, whose Fearless was last year's best-selling album of any genre.

Although Beyonce also lost out on record of the year, which went to the Kings of Leon's Use Somebody, the entertainer still owned the most awards of the evening.

In 2004, Beyonce won five Grammys on the strength of her debut album Dangerously in Love. She reached that milestone again on Sunday night en route to the new record. She is the first to reach that mark twice.

She shared the song of the year trophy with three writers for Single Ladies and also won best R&B contemporary album for I Am ... Sasha Fierce.

"This has been such an amazing night for me and I'd love to thank the Grammys," Beyonce said after winning best female pop vocal for Halo.

Lady Gaga won two Grammys during the pre-telecast ceremony. The Zac Brown Band, which won best new artist. The Black Eyed Peas had three trophies, as well as Jay-Z, who won for best rap solo performance and two awards for Run This Town with Rihanna and Kanye West.

Many participants in the program wore red cross buttons in support of Haiti earthquake relief. The show also included a special 3-D tribute to Michael Jackson.
