Train picked up the first award of the 2011 Grammy Awards telecast when they beat the "Glee" cast, Sade, Maroon 5, and Paramore for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals during Sunday's ceremony.

The group's live version of "Hey, Soul Sister" won them gold at the Los Angeles event. Taking to the stage, singer Pat Monahan joked, "Thanks, Justin Bieber, for not being a duo or a group."

The early leaders in the Grammy stakes were John Legend and Jay-Z, who both picked up three awards during the pre-show Grammys ceremony, which was not televised.

Legend took home the Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance honour for Hang On In There, Best R&B Song award (Shine) and Best R&B Album prize for his Wake Up! collaboration with The Roots.

And rapper Jay-Z was an early triple winner for Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group for On To The Next One with Swizz Beatz, Best Rap/Sung Collaboration and Best Rap Song, both for Empire State Of Mind with Alicia Keys.

Early multiple award winners included Lady Gaga, The Black Keys and country trio Lady Antebellum.
