Beyonce and Taylor Swift may have dominated the Grammys while Lady Gaga again dazzled photographers with another outfit only she could wear - but host Stephen Colbert mocked his star-studded audience by praising Susan Boyle for "saving" the recording industry.

Comedian Colbert, himself honoured during the Los Angeles ceremony, told the assembled stars: "You may be the coolest people in the world - this year your industry was saved by a 48-year-old Scottish cat lady in sensible shoes."

SuBo became a worldwide recording phenomenon after her audition for last year's Britain's Got Talent became an internet sensation.
