Beyoncé once again tied a record for most wins by a female performer at the Grammys by netting five trophies, including song of the year for Single Ladies, but the Kings of Leon's Use Somebody trumped her Halo to win record of the year on Sunday night.

The southern rock group's inspirational, romantic ode also beat out Taylor Swift's You Belong With Me, Lady Gaga's Poker Face and the Black Eyed Peas' I Gotta Feeling for the honour of the year's top record.

The quartet of three brothers and a cousin admitted they were already celebrating when they accepted their trophy, the third of the night.

Beyoncé, who in 2004 won five Grammys on the strength of her debut album Dangerously in Love, a mark tied by the likes of Alicia Keys, Norah Jones and Lauryn Hill, Amy Winehouse and Alison Krauss, reached that milestone again on Sunday. She is the first to reach that mark twice.

She won the song-writing trophy along with three writers for her omnipresent anthem Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It). The superstar also won best R&B contemporary album for I Am... Sasha Fierce among her other awards.

Beyoncé wasn't on hand to accept her early trophies: She was preparing for her dramatic onstage rendition of If I Were A Boy, one of several hits from her top-selling third CD.
