(Newser) – Lady Gaga scored three awards at tonight’s Brit Awards—the across-the-pond version of the Grammys—and won over the London audience by dedicating her show-opening performance to a late friend and favorite fashion designer. “This is for Alexander McQueen,” Gaga said before launching into an acoustic version of Telephone.

She won awards for international breakthrough, international female and international album. Some other winners:

  • Kasabian for top British group.
  • Jay-Z for international male artist.
  • Rapper Dizzee Rascal for British male artist.
  • Alt-rockers Florence and the Machine for top British album.
