LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Lady Antebellum's crossover hit, "Need You Now," didn't make it to No. 1 on the pop charts, but it won the 2011 record of the year Grammy.

"Need You Now" peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart last year. They performed the song last year at the Grammys and again at Sunday's show.

Lady Antebellum so far have won five awards on Sunday; they won one Grammy last year.

In the record of the year category, the country trio beat out No. 1 hits like Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind," Eminem's "Love the Way You Lie" and B.o.B's "Nothin' on You," as well as Cee Lo's expletive-laden hit, reworked as "Forget You!"
