(Newser) – Beyoncé won six Grammy Awards tonight in Los Angeles, setting a record for a female performer, but was foiled in two high-profile categories. The R&B superstar captured song of the year for "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On it)," while Taylor Swift took home album of the year for "Fearless"—one of the 20-year-old pop-country star's four trophies—and Kings of Leon won Record of the Year for "Use Somebody."

Jay-Z and Rihanna accepted the Grammy for best rap song, "Run This Town," without any help from their collaborator, awards-show poison Kanye West. In addition to hosting, Stephen Colbert took home the best comedy album award for "A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All." To see a list of the winners in the major categories, click here.
