U2 swept all five awards for which it was nominated at tonight’s Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb won for Album of the Year and Best Rock Album; “Sometimes You Can’t Make It On Your Own” won Song of the Year and Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal; and “City of Blinding Lights” was named Best Rock Song.

Steve Lillywhite also picked up the Grammy for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical, for his work on How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb and Jason Mraz’s album, Mr. A-Z.

For those on the West Coast, U2’s performance of “Vertigo” and “One” with Mary J. Blige comes about 30-35 minutes into the show. The Best Rock Album award is about one hour into the show, and Song of the Year is about 2.5 hours into the show. Album of the Year is at the 3:15 mark, and is followed by Edge’s performance in the all-star tribute to the music and sounds of New Orleans.

    That is the best thing in the world. Despite all my hater friends complaining and saying their stupid “U2 is overrated” comments, I still was so happy when they got all those.

    U2 = best band in the world. hands down.
