Imogen Heap turned heads at the Grammy Awards by wearing a Twitter dress.

The singer songwriter - who was one of only three British artists who came away with a gong, winning the award for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical for Ellipse - sported her own designer outfit, complete with flashing lights and a handbag-sized TV showing her followers.

"I just thought it'd be nice for them to come with me so I've got a live Twitter feed from them," she laughed.

She went on: "It was just me there in my studio. All the way through making the record I had so much encouragement and love via Twitter or YouTube or MySpace from the fans and it really helped me to crack the whip in the studio."

She admitted she was surprised to have won an award.

"I don't get played on the radio very often, just a little bit here and there," she explained.

She went on: "It's strange how when you release a song out into the world it doesn't feel like mine anymore, it just feels like it belongs to people in their ears and their car."

The other two British winners were Jeff Beck and Judas Priest, who won gongs for Best Rock Instrumental Performance for A Day In The Life and Best Metal Performance for Dissident Aggressor respectively.

The compilation Soundtrack in Film category went to Slumdog Millionaire, which features English artist MIA on the record.

The Beatles and Cirque du Soleil documentary All Together Now won the award for Long Form Music Video and an album made with British producer Brian Eno, Everything That Happens Will Happen Today, won Best Recording Package.
