lct awards 2010: MUSIC results

The LCT Awards results continue with the seven music categories.  Taking home the big award of the night - but missing out on any other wins (they were also nominated in Best Group) - was indie band April Smith and the Great Picture Show.  Record of the Year was named the group's peppy ditty "Colors," beating out some stiff competition from nominees "F**k You" by Cee Lo Green, "Telephone" by Lady Gaga and Beyonce, "When My Time Comes" by Dawes, and "Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart" by Alicia Keys."

In the rest of the categories, Lady Gaga repeated her win last year with a consecutive trophy for Album of the Year for The Fame Monster, edging out Maroon 5's Hands All Over and Robyn's Body Talk Pt. 1.  Best Male Artist was a landslide victory for R&B master Cee Lo Green, destroying the competition with the littlest of surges from fellow nominees Brandon Flowers and Taio Cruz.  Best Female Artist was a big toughie, but Lady Gaga - and a slew of mainstream cohorts including Katy Perry and Alicia Keys - was toppled by Europop superstar Robyn, though gospel songstress Patty Griffin proved the biggest competition.  And in Best Group, Album of the Year nominees The Weepies pulled off a victory over April Smith and Co., leaving indie bands Dawes and The Lower 48, as well as three-time nominee in this category Maroon 5, in the dust.  Full results below (click to enlarge)...
