Los Angeles – Gotye, FUN. and Mumford & Sons took home top honours at last night's Grammy Awards, which recognized the work of rap, indie-pop, folk and rock artists.

British folk band Mumford & Sons picked up two Grammys, including the coveted Album of the Year for Babel.

Indie-pop trio FUN. was named Best New Artist and won Song of the Year honours for its hit We Are Young, featuring Janelle Monae.

Australian singer Gotye won three Grammy awards, including Record of the Year for his heartbreak hit Somebody That I Used to Know, featuring New Zealand singer Kimbra.

Ohio rockers The Black Keys, formed by Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, also went home with three Grammys including Best Rock Album for El Camino.

Auerbach also won the prestigious Producer of the Year in the non-classical category, giving him a total of four wins.

Jay-Z and Kanye West walked off with three trophies, two for their collaboration N****s in Paris and one for their song Mercy, which also featured R&B star Frank Ocean.

The night's other winners included DJ Skrillex, Adele, Zac Brown Band, Miguel and Kelly Clarkson.

One of the night's most anticipated performers, Justin Timberlake, made his long-awaited return to the spotlight with his first televised performance since he released Suit & Tie in January, his first new song in five years.

Timberlake sang and danced with performers dressed in suits and ties in a throwback black and white speakeasy-style set, joined by rapper Jay-Z.

Timberlake also debuted a smooth R&B song called Pusher Love Girl, from his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience.
